“We are pleased to add Newell to our coaching staff,” said Maloney. “Newell has a wealth of experience and brings a very positive, upbeat attitude to our hockey Club. His primary focus will be our power play and creating more offensive opportunities in our games. With Assistant Coach John Anderson not returning, we have found an excellent replacement.”

Prior to joining the Coyotes, Brown spent the previous three seasons with the Vancouver Canucks as an Assistant Coach. He was named to the Vancouver staff on August 3, 2010 and he helped the Canucks to consecutive President’s Trophies in 2010-11 and 2011-12 in addition to an appearance in the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals.

The 51-year-old coach joined the Canucks after spending five seasons as an Assistant Coach with the Anaheim Ducks. Prior to that, he held the roles of Associate Coach and Assistant Coach for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Anaheim Mighty Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks dating back to the 1996-97 season.

Before joining the NHL ranks, Brown spent four seasons as Head Coach of the Adirondack Red Wings, Detroit’s AHL affiliate. He recorded a 151-132-36-2 record and four consecutive postseason appearances with Adirondack. He also served as Head Coach of Michigan Tech University from 1990-1992 after serving as an Assistant Coach at Michigan State from 1986-1990.

On the international stage, Brown was Head Coach of Team Canada when they secured a silver medal at the 1988 Spengler Cup.

A native of Cornwall, ONT, Brown played two seasons with the Cornwall Royals, where he helped the Royals win the Memorial Cup in 1979. After being drafted by Vancouver 158th overall in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft, Brown spent one year in the Canucks organization playing for Fredericton (AHL) and Muskegon (IHL) before captaining the Canadian National Team in 1985-86. Brown captained Michigan State in the final three years of his four-year tenure from 1980-1984 and finished his collegiate career with 186 points (66-120-186) in 146 games.
