Las Vegas continued with the hiring of former Capitals employees on Wednesday with the announcement that they have hired Dave Prior as Director of Goaltending and Head Goaltending Coach.
Prior served as Goalie Coach for the Washington Capitals from 1997-2014. Before joining the Capitals’ coaching staff, Prior worked as a goaltending coach for the Dallas Stars, Detroit Red Wings, San Jose Sharks and Winnipeg Jets. He has also gained international experience mentoring goalies on the German National Team.
Before his NHL coaching days began, the native of Guelph, Ontario spent seven years working with the NHL Central Scouting Bureau.
Last Thursday, the Las Vegas franchise announced the first hiring of an ex-Capitals, by naming Wil Nichol as the team’s Director of Player Development.
