Ottawa Senators name Cory Clouston head coach of AHL team

Clouston, the Canadian Hockey League's coach of the year last season, replaces Dave Cameron, who returned to the Ontario Hockey League's Mississauga St. Michael's Majors.

Clouston, a native of Viking, Alta., has been head coach of the WHL's Kooteney Ice for the past five seasons, earning a .637 winning percentage with a 209-110-24 record while making the playoffs each season and reaching the conference final in 2004-05.

Clouston, who has assistant coach with the Ice from 1999-2000 to 2001-02, was the general manager and head coach of the Grande Prairie Storm of the Alberta Junior Hockey League from 1995 to '99.

The 37-year-old played four years at the University of Alberta and was a member of the 1991-92 Golden Bears team that won the Canadian university men's hockey championship.
