Niedermayer hones new skill as assistant coach
Niedermayer hones new skill as assistant coach

Scott Niedermayer slowly is working his way into a second career in hockey, as an assistant coach with the Anaheim Ducks.

Niedermayer doesn't consider himself a full-time assistant because he typically doesn't travel with the club to road games. But since the start of last season, he has been at every home game and every home practice and usually is working with Anaheim's defensemen, particularly younger ones like Cam Fowler, Luca Sbisa, Hampus Lindholm and Sami Vatanen.

"The organization has allowed me to do that and I've really enjoyed it," Niedermayer told NHL.com. "The reason I retired was to have some time to do different things with my family. This is really allowing me to do that as well as be involved and pass along things I learned during my career to some of the younger players coming into the League. I enjoy doing that."

Niedermayer said he has no plans to become a full-time, traveling assistant coach any time soon, but he could see it happening eventually. He's content now being involved in the lives of his four boys, Logan, Jackson, Joshua and Luke.

"It is fun to see your team out there having success and trying to help these young guys to see them improve," Niedermayer said. "I never would have guessed I'd be in this situation 10 years ago but I'm enjoying it. There are a slew of guys that we're just trying to point in the right direction, give them pointers. I'm not making decisions on the club's strategy and that, but a lot of personal things, the mental approach to the game, that's sort of where I want to help out."
