Not mid-season no, especially not from the NHL team (assistant coaches). I can't recall a team letting its assistant coach go mid-season to join another team. Farm team coaches are a bit different, but even then, it'd likely only happen if it was an eastern conference team let their farm coach go to the western conference, or vice versa. Like Nashville and Carolina with Muller.

Not to mention the difficulty filling the spot mid-season.

This wouldn't shock me. DL's been suspected of doing this before.
