The Capitals rounded out their coaching staff and upped the experience level behind the bench significantly Monday when they named Tim Hunter as an assistant coach.
Hunter, 51, has 13 seasons and 1,041 games as an NHL assistant coach under his belt, including five in Washington from 1997-98 to 2001-02. As he joins first-time head coach Adam Oates and first-time NHL assistant coach Calle Johansson, Hunter knows he is expected to be the experienced anchor of the staff.
"Every organization needs experience, whether it's in management, scouting, the players -- it's the same with coaching. You need experience on the coaching staff," Hunter said. "I talked to Adam early on he was looking for someone with experience and I definitely have that. I'm a career assistant coach and I'm looking forward to helping Adam and Calle become better coaches and the Caps to become a better team. "
