Luke Richardson Lands NHL Job

Former Binghamton Senators Coach Luke Richardson has been hired as an assistant coach for the New York Islanders.  He will be an assistant on Head Coach Doug Weight’s staff.

Richardson served as Head Coach of the Binghamton Senators for four seasons where he compiled a record of 153-120-0-17-14.  Following the 2015-16 season he left the Ottawa organization and led Team Canada to the Spengler Cup Championship in international play last season.

Richardson spent 21 seasons in the National Hockey League playing with six different teams.  He was an assistant coach in Ottawa for three seasons before being named the head coach in Binghamton.

Richardson was a teammate of Doug Weight during his playing days with the Edmonton Oilers.  Richardson joins another assistant coach with ties to the Greater Binghamton area.  Endwell native Mike Dunham, a member of the Binghamton Hockey Hall of Fame, is the goaltending coach with the Islanders.
