    Flyers hire Kris Knoblauch as assistant coach to replace fired Joe Mullen

    The Flyers have hired Kris Knoblauch as an assistant head coach, replacing longtime assistant Joey Mullen, who was fired in April. 

    Knoblauch, 38, spent the last five seasons as head coach of the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League. 

    "Kris has had great success at the junior level with the Erie Otters and Kootenay Ice," GM Ron Hextall said in a statement from the team. "He's coached a lot of good young offensive gifted players. We feel he is a real good fit with our group and we're excited to have him in our organization."
