DeBoer named Team Canada assistant coach for world championships

Devils head coach Peter DeBoer has been named to the coaching staff of Team Canada for the 2014 IIHF World Championship.

DeBoer joins head coach Dave Tippett and assistant coach Paul Maurice for the tournament, which will be held May 9-25 in Minsk, Belarus.

“We are very pleased with the coaching staff that we have assembled for Belarus,” said general manager Rob Blake. “Dave, Peter and Paul have had great experience and success at all levels of hockey, and we know that they will ensure that our team is very well prepared for the world championship.”

“As a coaching staff, we are looking forward to the challenge of representing Canada at the world championship,” said Tippett. “Hockey Canada has had a great season this year, so we look forward to capitalizing on that momentum in Belarus. I am looking forward to working with Peter, Paul and all of our players and staff, as we assemble a team that will play a good brand of Canadian hockey and make Canadians proud.”

DeBoer has just completed his third season in New Jersey. It was announced during the Devils’ season finale last Sunday that DeBoer would be back for 2014-15.

DeBoer served as an associate coach under Craig MacTavish at the 2010 IIHF World Championship, where Canada finished fifth. DeBoer was also an assistant coach for Canada at the 2007 Canada-Russia Under-20 Super Series, where Canada won seven of eight games and at the 2005 IIHF World Junior Championship, winning gold.
