Jerry Forton hired as assistant coach

Buffalo native Jerry Forton hired as the other assistant coach

http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/sa...coach-20130823

Was at Harvard last year, also spent 13 years at Niagara U... Anyone got anything else on him as a hire?

Really hope he wasn't hired on the grounds that he's from here alone

I doubt Rolston cared about that.

Seems like another "development coach" which is what the team needs if it's going really young.

Development coaches are what we need now yes. If the team gets all this youth they need guys to show them the way to mature/develop into NHLers. Should be good. Anyone have notable stuff on this guy?

seems like a bit of an odd choice, and Harvard's program has not been that great in the Donato era.
