Muller Joins Blues as Assistant Coach
Kirk Muller, the former head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes, has joined the Blues as an Assistant Coach.

ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has named Kirk Muller an Assistant Coach.

“We are excited to add Kirk to our staff,” said Armstrong. “He was a Stanley Cup-winning player, and as a coach, has shown excellent communication skills and the ability to relate to both young and veteran players.”

Muller, 48, joins the club from the Carolina Hurricanes, where he has spent parts of the past three seasons as head coach, accumulating an 80-80-27 overall record. Previously, Muller served a 17-game stint as head coach of the American Hockey League’s (AHL) Milwaukee Admirals in 2011-12, while he also spent five seasons as an assistant coach with the Montreal Canadiens (2006-11).

While with Montreal, he helped lead the Canadiens to four consecutive playoff appearances, including 2010, when the club reached the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 1993.

Internationally, Muller has served as an assistant coach for Team Canada on three occasions, including most recently, the 2012 IIHF World Championships.

During his playing career, the Kingston, Ontario native spent 19 seasons (1984-2003) in the NHL, appearing in 1,349 regular season games, including stints with New Jersey, Montreal, New York (Islanders), Toronto, Florida and Dallas, where he played for Ken Hitchcock for parts of three seasons (1999-2002).

A two-time team captain (New Jersey, 1989-91 – Montreal 1994-95), Muller also dressed in 127 career postseason games, posting 69 points (33 goals, 36 assists), including the Stanley Cup-clinching goal for Montreal in the 1993 Stanley Cup final. A six-time All-Star and five-time 30-goal scorer, Muller finished his NHL career with 959 points (357 goals, 602 assists) and 1,223 penalty minutes, making him one of 27 players in NHL history with at least 900 points and 1,200 penalty minutes.

Internationally, Muller represented Canada six times during his career, including the 1984 Winter Olympics and World Junior Championships, and four World Championships (1985-87, 1989).
