Monarchs introduce new coach (NH Union Leader)
COMING BACK to the American Hockey League is like coming home for Mike Stothers.
The 52-year-old Toronto native was introduced as the fourth head coach of the Manchester Monarchs at a press conference at Verizon Wireless Arena Wednesday.
Stothers played parts of 11 seasons in the AHL (mostly with Maine and Hershey), logging 671 AHL games.
