Ted Nolan has added another man to his coaching staff, as Danny Flynn will be the second member of the group according to Halifax Mooseheads play-by-play man John Moore. Flynn joins Bryan Trottier, who Bucky Gleason  reported two days ago would be joining Nolan.

Nolan and Flynn are no strangers, as this will be their third time working together. Flynn was an assistant on Nolan's staff with the Islanders in 2006-07 and also worked together during Nolan's time with the Moncton Wildcats. He's won two QMJHL championships and two OHL championships in 15 seasons of coaching Canadian juniors. He was relieved of his coaching duties by Moncton in 2013 but remained with the team as the Director of Hockey Operations.
