Dean Evason hired as Admirals Head Coach

http://predators.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=635138

He was the assistant in Washington for 7 years. He was also on the Caps roster as a player when Poile as the GM.

Quote:
“Dean Evason brings the knowledge, insight and expertise of 20 years of NHL playing and coaching experience to the organization, and we are excited to have him guiding our young players and prospects as our development coach,” Poile said. “Given his success working with a diverse group of players and coaches, and his ability to alter his style to their strengths, we feel our young players and prospects are in great hands.”
Quote:
Washington’s third selection, 89th overall (third round), in the 1982 Entry Draft, Evason amassed 372 points (139g-233a) and 1,002 penalty minutes in 803 NHL games with the Capitals, Hartford Whalers, San Jose Sharks, Dallas Stars and Calgary Flames from 1983-96. This included a pair of seasons playing under then-Washington General Manager David Poile (1983-85) and three seasons as a teammate of Predators Assistant General Manager Paul Fenton in both the Hartford (1984-86) and San Jose (1991-92) organizations. An honored member of the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame, he served as a player/coach for Team Canada during the 1996-97 season, captaining the team to a gold medal at the 1997 World Championship. He wound down his career as a player/coach with Landshut of the German League in 1997-98 and 1998-99.

He's from Flin Flon, Manitoba which is possibly the greatest name ever.

Good luck with him. The Caps fans have been bashing the idea of him becoming the Caps head coach because they want a shiny new toy, but Evason was around for the offensive power house of Boudreau and the "I'd rather watch paint dry," playoff system of Dale Hunter.
