NEW STAFF: John Madden, Mark Morris, Mike Kelly, Robb Tallas to join Gerard Gallant | On Frozen Pond
Morris, 56, was recently fired as coach of the AHL's Manchester Monarchs after eight seasons.
As the top minor league team of the Kings, Morris was instrumental in helping young players develop into eventual Stanley Cup champions.
"He's good at developing young defensemen and that was very important to us,'' Tallon said. "We have a lot of good, young defensemen in our system.''
