Hey, I'm new at this too.

This week three more AHL coaches got the call to the NHL. Of course, we've mentioned in two posts now that Mike Haviland is taking a post with the Chicago Blackhawks. But it's also worth noting that former Wolves bench boss John Anderson is taking Todd Nelson (Wolves assistant) and Rochester head coach Randy Cunneyworth with him to Atlanta. And in San Jose, Todd Richards from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton is joining the Sharks as an assistant. (so is former Chicago Blackhawks and Norfolk Admirals coach Trent Yawney).
EDIT 8/22/08 (added Philadelphia and Providence, removed two incorrect teams): That makes the unofficial AHL-wide count of new coaches in 2008-09 at 12 (Chicago, Grand Rapids, Iowa, Norfolk, Peoria, Philadelphia, Portland, Providence, Rochester, Rockford, Springfield, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton). Hershey's Bob Woods will be in his first full season.
Let's take an updated look at the coaching situation in the West Division (new coaches in bold):
Oh and a treat for reading all the way to the end of the post -- here's the transcript from an AHL chat session last spring with the Chicago Blackhawks' newly-aquired center Tim Brent.
Busy week for the IceHogs

We’re about as far away from hockey as we can be as it’s been over two months since the IceHogs last took the ice and we still have two months until training camp opens. This past week, however, has been easily the busiest of the summer for the IceHogs.
