Pellerin Named Sound Tigers Head Coach

The New York Islanders announced today that Scott Pellerin has been named head coach of their American Hockey League affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Pellerin, 42, has served as the assistant coach of the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs for the past six seasons. Through his time with the Monarchs, Pellerin helped guide the team to a 253-173-21-29 regular season record and five post-season appearances. During the 2006-07 season, Pellerin assisted in leading Manchester to a franchise record in wins (51) and points (110). That same season, the Monarchs made it to the Calder Cup Eastern Conference Finals. Pellerin was also a part of the Monarchs team that made it to the Calder Cup Eastern Conference Finals in 2010.

“Scott brings tremendous experience to our organization, from not only coaching, but also his playing career,” Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said. “Over the past six seasons with the Manchester Monarchs, he has developed numerous prospects into everyday NHL players, including current Islander Matt Moulson. We look forward to seeing that continuing trend with our young prospects.”

A native of Shediac, New Brunswick, Pellerin played in a combined 864 professional games during his 13-year playing career that spanned from 1992-2004. Over that time, he collected 72 goals, 126 assists and 198 points in 536 NHL games with the New Jersey Devils, St. Louis Blues, Minnesota Wild, Carolina Hurricanes, Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars and Phoenix Coyotes.

“I’m thrilled with the opportunity Charles Wang and Garth Snow have given me as Head Coach of the Sound Tigers,” Pellerin said. “I look forward to working closely with Jack Capuano, while at the same time developing the young prospects within the organization into everyday NHL players.”

Pellerin was a member of the 1995 Calder Cup Champion Albany River Rats. He totaled 304 points (120 goals, 184 assists) in 328 career AHL games with the River Rats, Utica Devils, Worcester IceCats and Portland Pirates.

A graduate of the University of Maine in 1992, Pellerin earned Co-Rookie of the Year honors in 1988, Player of the Year honors in 1992, MVP of the Hockey East Tournament in 1992 and he was the Hobey Baker Award Winner in 1992. Pellerin was the Devils’ third round selection (47th overall) in the 1989 NHL Draft.
