Scott Arniel Named Head Coach Of The Chicago Wolves

Scott Arneil. The Chicago Wolves, in conjunction with the Vancouver Canucks, have named SCOTT ARNIEL as the team’s new head coach.

ARNIEL becomes the ninth coach in Wolves history and brings 12 years of professional coaching experience to Chicago’s bench, which includes 123 games of National Hockey League experience as head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets. He posted a 45-60-18 record behind the Blue Jackets bench before parting ways with Columbus on Jan. 9, 2012.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Scott Arniel into our organization,” said Wolves general manager WENDELL YOUNG. “Scott’s experience at the National and American League level as a coach and a player, along with his background in player personnel and developing prospects, makes him an ideal person to lead this team.”

The 49-year-old ARNIEL has compiled a 181-106-16-17 record and .617 percent winning percentage in 320 games as an American Hockey League head coach with the now-defunct Manitoba Moose, spanning four seasons (2006-10). He led Manitoba to an appearance in the 2009 Calder Cup Finals and was awarded the Louis A.R. Pieri Memorial Award as the league’s coach of the year that season.

The Kingston, Ontario, native also served as an assistant coach with the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres (2002-04; 05-06), and with Manitoba (2000-02) before becoming a head coach.

A veteran of 730 NHL contests as a player with the Winnipeg Jets (1981-86; 1990-91), Buffalo Sabres (1986-1990), and Boston Bruins (1991-92), ARNIEL registered 149 goals, 189 assists, and 338 points in 11 seasons. He also posted 14 points (7G, 7A) in 25 career AHL tilts with the Maine Mariners and New Haven Nighthawks in 1991-92 and tallied 460 points (194G, 266A) in 530 International Hockey League outings with the San Diego Gulls (1992-94), Houston Aeros (1994-96), Utah Grizzlies (1995-96) and Manitoba (1996-99). He won the 1996 Turner Cup as a member of Utah.

In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
