ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Former Anaheim Ducks captain Scott Niedermayer will be an assistant coach to Bruce Boudreau this season.
The Ducks announced the appointment Friday.
Niedermayer spent the final five seasons of his 18-year career in Anaheim, winning the Conn Smythe Trophy as the NHL's playoff MVP while leading the Ducks to their only Stanley Cup championship in 2007.
The offense-minded defenseman retired in June 2010 at just 36 years old. He spent the last two years as a consultant to the Ducks' hockey operations department.
Niedermayer was a six-time All-Star who won the Norris Trophy in 2004 while playing for New Jersey. He won three Stanley Cup titles with the Devils in 1995, 2000 and 2003.
Niedermayer joins Ducks assistant coaches Bob Woods and Brad Lauer.
