Predators Hire Lane Lambert As Assistant Coach

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Predators have promoted Lane Lambert from coaching their top affiliate in Milwaukee to being coach Barry Trotz's assistant in Nashville.

General manager David Poile announced the move Thursday along with re-signing goaltending coach Mitch Korn.

Lambert led Milwaukee to a 178-118-37 record between 2007 and 2001, and the Admirals just posted the highest point total in the American Hockey League's Western Conference this season despite having 10 players recalled by Nashville. On Nashville's current roster, 11 Predators once played for Lambert in Milwaukee.

Korn has been with the Predators since their inaugural season working with goaltenders like Pekka Rinne, a Vezina Trophy finalist this year.
