Devils hire Mark Recchi as assistant on Lindy Ruff's staff

Mark Recchi played and lifted the Stanley Cup with Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara and coached Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, so the Hockey Hall of Famer knows a thing or two about winning with stars.

It might take some time for him to help the New Jersey Devils get to that point, but he's willing to take on the challenge. Recchi on Wednesday joined new coach Lindy Ruff's staff as an assistant, and he's excited at the young talent they're inheriting and hoping to turn New Jersey back into a playoff contender.

Recchi will be tasked with improving the Devils' power play, which ranked 21st in the NHL last season, and helping the progression of No. 1 picks Nico Hischier and Jack Hughes and others with limited pro experience. After three seasons as an assistant with the Pittsburgh Penguins, he feels he has the right approach to get through to young players.
