New York Rangers hire Gord Murphy and Mike Kelly as assistant coaches to join Gallant’s staff

Gerard Gallant has found at least two of his assistant coaches to start his tenure with the Rangers. Mike Kelly and Gord Murphy will be joining the coaching staff.

Kelly has followed Gallant around for a while, starting with him in the QMJHL before joining him in Florida and Vegas.

Murphy, the former defenseman, was with the Hartford Wolf Pack last season and will now join Gallant with the Rangers this season. He had long stints as an assistant with Columbus, Florida, and the Flyers.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
