Phoenix Coyotes hire former Vancouver assistant Newell Brown to serve on Tippett's staff

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes have hired former Vancouver Canucks assistant coach Newell Brown to serve on Dave Tippett's staff.

He replaces John Anderson, who didn't return after two years with the Coyotes.

The 51-year-old Brown spent the past three seasons with Vancouver, working on a staff that helped lead the Canucks to the Presidents' Trophy in consecutive seasons and a trip to the 2011 Stanley Cup finals.

Brown also has served as an assistant coach for Anaheim, Columbus and Chicago in an NHL career that dates to the 1996-97 season. He also was the head coach for four seasons with Adirondack, the Detroit Red Wings' AHL affiliate.
