Lindy Ruff is back in the game.

The veteran bench boss has been named an assistant coach with the New York Rangers, the team announced Monday.

Ruff arrives in New York after a four-year stint as head coach of the Dallas Stars in which he posted a 131-85-30 record. The Stars did not renew his contract at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Prior to joining Dallas, Ruff was the head coach of the Buffalo Sabres for 15 seasons. He led Buffalo to the Stanley Cup Final in 1999 and won the Jack Adams Award in 2006.

Ruff ranks fifth all time with 736 career wins.
