Read: Alain Vigneault May Bring One Of His Vancouver Assistants/Maybe Former Blue Jackets Coach

According to Larry Brooks in the NY Post, Alain Vigneault may bring Newell Brown to the Rangers as an assistant coach.

Brown was an assistant with Vigneault in Vancouver since 2010 and ran their power play.

Brown says, as Brooks notes, that 77% of PP goals are scored when there are two right handed shots on the ice.

Brooks says that over 50% of the Rangers PP goals came when there were two right handed shots, mostly Derek Stepan and Ryan Callahan, were on the ice.

Brooks notes that former Columbus coach Scott Arniel is a long-time friend of Vigneault and also a potential addition to the coaching staff. Arniel is under contract to the Canucks, coaching their AHL team and believed to be one of the final four candidates to replace Vigneault in Vancouver.

Arniel coached Rick Nash, Derek Dorsett, Derick Brassard and John Moore while the head coach in Columbus. He and Brassard didn’t always have the strongest relationship.
