OTTAWA (AP) -John Paddock became the Ottawa Senators' coach Friday, taking over a team that made it to the Stanley Cup finals this past season.
The 53-year-old Paddock, who was the Senators' assistant coach the last two seasons, will be the sixth coach in franchise history. He takes over from Bryan Murray, who was promoted to general manager in mid-June.
Paddock was coach of the Winnipeg Jets from 1991-95, compiling a record of 106-138-37. He played right wing for three clubs - Washington, Philadelphia and Quebec - between 1975 and 1983.
