The Niagara IceDogs are thrilled to announce that Ted Dent has been named as Associate Coach!
Dent was previously the head coach of the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs for the past 6 season, the top affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks. Prior to being named the Head Coach, Ted served as Assistant Coach for the Blackhawks AHL affiliate for 5 seasons.
Over his 11 years with the Blackhawks organization, Ted played a huge role in the development of many players who have moved on to win multiple Stanley Cups with Chicago. To maintain such an important position with a prestigious organization, like the Chicago Blackhawks, for so long not only speaks to Ted’s outstanding ability as a coach but his character as well.
The entire IceDogs organization is thrilled to have Ted on the coaching staff as we continue to build towards an OHL championship.
