Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today that they have named Jacques Cloutier as associate coach. Cloutier joins the Flames coaching staff following a championship season alongside Bob Hartley with the ZSC Lions of Switzerland’s National League A.
“I’m very happy to be joining the Calgary Flames organization,” said Cloutier. “I’d like to thank Jay Feaster, Bob Hartley and the Flames for this opportunity. I’ve worked with Bob for many years and I’m excited to be going back to the NHL with him in such a passionate Canadian hockey market and with such a highly regarded organization as Calgary.”
“Jacques brings a wealth of hockey experience, including two Stanley Cup championships, to our coaching staff,” said Flames Head Coach Bob Hartley. “We have been coaching partners for many years, beginning in Cornwall (AHL) immediately after his playing days, another five years in Colorado (NHL) and most recently in Zurich (Swiss National A League). He has a tremendous talent for working with professionals, from young players to veterans. Jacques and I have developed very good chemistry and I consider him the most team oriented and loyal individual I have met in my career. He’ll be a valuable addition to our staff and to our success.”
