Senators give AHL coach Luke Richardson and assistants one-year extensions

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators have extended the contracts of AHL head coach Luke Richardson and his staff through the 2014-15 season.

Richardson, who spent three seasons as an assistant at the NHL level, led the Binghamton Senators to a fourth-place finish in the Eastern Conference last year. Binghamton went 44-24-1-7 before being swept out of the playoffs in the first round.

The 44-year-old jumped almost immediately from his career as a defenceman to life in coaching. He played 1,417 games over 20 seasons before retiring in November 2008.

Assistants Steve Stirling and Matt Meacham also received one-year extensions.
