This just in, the St. Louis Blues have hired former Dallas Stars head coach Jim Montgomery. Montgomery will serve as an assistant coach underneath head coach Craig Berube.

Montgomery, of course, was unceremoniously dumped by the Stars mid-season after the team cited "unprofessional conduct." Since then Montgomery has come clean about his struggles with alcoholism and has owned up to his firing in Dallas.
"We are excited to add Jim to our team and to Craig (Berube's) staff," Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong told stlouisblues.com. "Jim has won at every level he has coached at and we look forward to him being a valuable addition to our team."
"My family and I are very grateful to Mr. (Tom) Stillman, Doug and Craig for this opportunity to be part of the Blues organization," Montgomery said. "This is an extremely talented group of players and staff and I am looking forward to assisting in any way to help the Blues regain the Stanley Cup."
