NEWARK, NJ – Before the first on-ice session of the 2013-14 New Jersey Devils training camp, the organization announced that Sergei Brylin has been named assistant coach for Albany. Along with Martin Brodeur, Ken Daneyko, Scott Niedermayer and Scott Stevens, Brylin was a member of all three New Jersey’s Stanley Cup Championship teams.
Brylin spent his entire 13-year NHL career with the Devils between 1994-95 through 2007-08. He appeared in 765 career regular-season games, which ranks ninth in team history.
No stranger to the Capital Region, the Russian forward had three stints with the Devils AHL affiliate in Albany. He appeared in a combined 150 games, playing during the 1994-95, 1996-97 and 1997-98 seasons.
Brylin joins Head Coach Rick Kowalsky’s staff with assistant coach Tommy Albelin and goaltending coach Dave Caruso.
