ohn MacLean will, indeed, be an assistant coach on Rick Tocchet’s staff in Arizona, as reported yesterday. So too will Scott Allen. “We are very pleased to have John and Scott join the Coyotes organization,” said Coyotes GM John Chayka in a release. “Both individuals bring a wealth of hockey knowledge and coaching experience to our team and we are confident that they will be great additions to Head Coach Rick Tocchet’s staff.” MacLean — who had a short, unsuccessful stint as head coach of the New Jersey Devils in 2010 — was last behind an NHL bench as an assistant on Kirk Muller’s staff in Carolina from 2011-14. Allen spent last season as an assistant in Florida, before being let go to make way for Bob Boughner’s new staff.
