Barry Trotz's right-hand man could be in line for a head coaching job of his own.
The New York Islanders associate coach previously served on Trotz's staff with the Washington Capitals and Nashville Predators.
The 54-year-old former forward also has head coaching experience at the AHL level with the Milwaukee Admirals.
Anaheim is one of four NHL clubs without a head coach at the moment, including the Buffalo Sabres, Edmonton Oilers, and Ottawa Senators.
Ducks general manager Bob Murray took over behind the bench after firing Randy Carlyle in February.
