The Bruins announced Wednesday that they have named Doug Jarvis as an assistant coach. The move rounds out a group that also consists of head coach Claude Julien [1] as well as assistants Doug Houda and Geoff Ward. Craig Ramsay left the Bruins earlier in the offseason to become the head coach of the Atlanta Thrashers [2].

Jarvis most recently coached with the Canadiens from 2005 to 2009 and worked under Julien during the 2005-06 season. Prior to that, he served as a coach for the North Stars/Stars from 1988-2002. After leaving Dallas, he became head coach of the Hamilton Bulldogs (the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate) for two seasons.

As a player, Jarvis holds the current record for the longest games played streak with 964. He played 13 seasons in the NHL [3] and won Stanley Cups with the Canadiens in each of his first four seasons. He totaled 403 points in his professional career.
