Senators hire Kurt Kleinendorst to coach AHL Binghamton

Aug 6, 2010, 1:14 PM EDT

The Ottawa Senators are digging into American coaches to find the guy they want to teach their youth. The Sens announced that they’ve hired Kurt Kleinendorst to be the head coach of their AHL team in Binghamton. Some of you might recall Kleinendorst from his days as an assistant to Larry Robinson in New Jersey. American hockey fans who are very intent on following the young, up and coming players will better know Kleinendorst as the head coach of Team USA’s Under-18 team last year, leading them to a gold medal in the Under-18 World Junior Championships. This won’t be Kleinendorst’s first go-round as an AHL head coach, as he coached the Lowell Devils for three years from 2006-2009.
