Paul MacLean has officially joined the Anaheim Ducks' bench as an assistant.

In addition to MacLean, Bruce Boudreau’s coaching staff will host assistant coaches Trent Yawney and Scott Niedermayer, along with goaltending consultant Dwayne Roloson and video coordinator Joe Piscotty. That's a lot of experience all on one bench. This is MacLean's second stint as an assistant in Anaheim, having previously served from 2002-04 which includes when the then-Mighty Ducks went to their franchise's first final.

Former Ottawa Senators' head coach Paul MacLean is expected to join the Anaheim Ducks' bench as an assistant to Bruce Boudreau.

The Anaheim Ducks have been granted permission to speak to former Sens coach Paul MacLean.

With Bruce Boudreau coming back next season, MacLean would have to join the Ducks as an assistant coach. We haven't heard many reports about teams reaching out to MacLean, so if he's hesitant about going back to becoming an assistant coach, he should continue wait for another opportunity to open up.

There has reportedly been no teams inquiring about the possibility of interviewing Paul MacLean.

In a market with plenty of high profile coaches, MacLean might find himself going into the 2015-16 campaign without a job. His fall from grace has been dramatic as he won the Jack Adams Award in 2013. He had a 114-90-35 record with the Ottawa Senators.

Paul MacLean could become the next head coach of the New Jersey Devils.

MacLean's name is being bandied about in reports as the Devils fired Peter De Boer on Friday and MacLean just became available a few weeks ago as the Senators canned him on December 8. It appears that players on the Devils seem to think he will be named on Saturday morning as their coach. Stay tuned.

The Ottawa Senators have fired head coach Paul MacLean.

A replacement has not been announced yet. MacLean was nominated for the Jack Adams Award in 2011-12 and he won the award in 2012-13. The Senators have a 11-11-5 record this season and the club ended a five-game winless skid on Sunday.

Paul MacLean said he is "scared to death" of any team the Senators play.

"All I know is I'm scared to death no matter who we're playing," MacLean said before Saturday's game when TSN's Chris Cuthbert asked if he'd be more worried facing a hot or cold Sidney Crosby. "Whether it's Sidney Crosby or John Tavares or the Sedins, I go day-by-day and I'm just scared to death every day of who we're playing." It's an interesting choice of words for MacLean to use. The fans in Ottawa probably won't take too kindly to this kind of comment. The Senators have lost five games in a row and seven of their last eight.

The Ottawa Senators lost Saturday's game against New Jersey on a power play goal in overtime.

Both teams have struggled on special teams this season. New Jersey's power play was struggling coming into this game, while Ottawa's penalty killing hasn't been very good. The Senators have the 22nd ranked penalty kill in the league at 77.3 percent.

The Ottawa Senators are expecting to have an energized crowd for Saturday's home game against New Jersey.

"Hopefully, anything we can do to help with the spirits (of the city) and try to take (people's) minds off things is something we'll be happy to do," said center Kyle Turris. "Hopefully, we'll have a good atmosphere here Saturday and I feel like 'O Canada' before the game will have special meaning to it." It's been a difficult week for Ottawa and for Canada after the tragic death of a Canadian soldier at the War Memorial and an attack on Parliament Hill.

It looks as if the Senators top two lines are pretty much settled.

Ottawa's first line will feature Kyle Turis between Clarke MacArthur and Bobby Ryan. The second unit will have Mika Zibanejad flanked by Milan Michalek (provided he is healthy) and Alex Chiasson. Ottawa is not expected to be a high-scoring team in 2014-15 but you can find 50-60 point value amongst this group of forwards.

"Having a strong affiliate that gives our players the opportunity to learn how to be a professional and the chance to compete to win each and every night is a tremendous asset to future of our organization. We’re very pleased to know they will be our affiliate for five more seasons." Binghamton is coming off of a season where it won its division with a 44-24-3-5 record, but was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.
