CRAIG BERUBE NAMED FLYERS HEAD COACH

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced Monday morning that Craig Berube has been named the 18th head coach in Flyers history, replacing Peter Laviolette, who was relieved of his duties.

Berube, 48 (12/17/65), had started his seventh season as a Flyers assistant coach and is in his 17th overall season with the club. Berube was most recently named a Flyers assistant coach on August 7, 2008, and also served as an assistant coach for most of the 2006-07 season.

He has been a coach in the organization since 2004, when he was named the assistant coach of the Philadelphia Phantoms, the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate. He served in that capacity for the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons, and was the head coach of the Phantoms for the first six games of the 2006-07 season and all of the 2007-08 season.

During the 2007-08 season, Berube posted a 49-29-5-3 record as head coach of the Phantoms and led the team to a second-place finish in the East Division and a trip to the AHL’s East Division Finals. He was originally named to that position on June 14, 2006. He was first named a Flyers assistant coach on October 23, 2006, and was re-appointed as the Phantoms head coach on June 4, 2007.

Berube’s history with the Flyers dates back to March 19, 1986, when he was signed as a free agent after completing his junior year in the Western Hockey League. Over parts of seven seasons with the Flyers (1986-91, 1998-2000), Berube recorded 20 goals and 34 assists for 54 points and 1,138 penalty minutes in 323 regular season games. His 1,138 PIM ranks ninth on the Flyers’ All-Time List.

Berube returned to the Flyers organization for a third time on November 18, 2003 when he signed with the Phantoms as a player. He was named a player/assistant coach on January 29, 2004 and moved to full-time coaching the following year. He recorded six assists and 134 penalty minutes in 33 regular season games for the Phantoms during the 2003-04 season, his 18th and final professional season, before moving into a full-time coaching role the following year.

Over parts of 17 NHL seasons (1986-87 through 2002-03), Berube registered 61 goals and 98 assists for 159 points and 3,149 penalty minutes in 1,054 career regular season games for the Flyers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, Washington Capitals and New York Islanders. His 3,149 career penalty minutes ranks seventh in NHL history.

Berube and his wife, Rebecca, have three children – sons Jake and Nashota and daughter Charlotte.
