NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Devils have chosen Mark Dennehy as the coach of their top minor league affiliate.
Devils general manager Ray Shero said Wednesday that Dennehy will take over the job with the Binghamton Devils. The former Merrimack coach had accepted a position this summer in Wheeling (ECHL) as its head coach and director of hockey operations.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Wheeling officials gave the Devils permission to speak with the 50-year-old Dennehy.
Dennehy will be leaving for Slovakia this week to coach Team USA's Under-17 team for the Five Nations Tournament.
