Nashville Predators Executive Vice President/General Manager David Poile announced today that Brad Lauer has been named the assistant coach for the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League, the Predators primary developmental affiliate.

Lauer comes to the Admirals after five successful seasons as an assistant coach for the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League.  During the 2006-07 season, Lauer helped the Ice to an impressive 49-17-0-3 record and 104 points which was good for second place in the WHL’s Central Division.  In his five seasons with the Ice the team picked up over 100 points twice and they won 40 games during three campaigns.  The team’s winning percentage during that span was a remarkable .638, while their 139 wins over the past three seasons are the most in any three years combined in team history.

“I am very happy to be able to add Brad to our staff for this upcoming season,” said Admirals head coach Lane Lambert.  “His experience as a player and a coach will be an asset for myself as well as our players.  I am looking forward to working closely with Brad to continue the winning tradition that has been established here in Milwaukee.”

The New York Islanders second round pick in the 1985 draft, Lauer completed a 16-year playing career after the 2001-02 season.  In that time he posted 111 points on 44 goals and 67 assists in 323 career NHL games with the Islanders, Chicago Blackhawks, Ottawa Senators, and Pittsburgh Penguins.  His most successful NHL campaign came during the 1987-88 season when he noched 35 points (17g-18a) in 69 games with the Isles.  He was also a member of the 1991-92 Blackhawks team that made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Lauer also established himself as a scoring threat during 13 seasons in the AHL and the International Hockey League.  Playing for the Indianapolis Ice, Las Vegas Thunder, Cleveland Lumberjacks and Utah Grizzlies of the IHL, he picked up 273 goals and 275 assists for 548 career points.  He also skated for the Springfield Indians and Capital-District Islanders in the American League where he registered 28 points (10g-18a) in 26 games.

In 1992-93, he topped all IHL players with 50 goals and finished fifth in the league in scoring with 91 points despite playing in just 62 games during the year for Indianapolis.  Lauer played a pair of seasons with Lambert in Cleveland, including the 1996-97 campaign that saw the Lumberjacks make it to the Eastern Conference Finals, the farthest they ever advanced, before falling to eventual champion Detroit.

The 40-year old Lauer spent from 1998-2001 with the Grizzlies where he notched 72 goals and 75 assists in 222 games, including a 31 red-lighters in the 1998-99 season.  He finished his playing career with the Sheffield Steelers of the British Super League in 2001-02.
