The Los Angeles Kings have promoted an assistant coach to become the head coach of the Ontario Reign of the American Hockey League. Sturm has served as an assistant with the Kings for the last four seasons. The former first-round pick (21st overall) of the San Jose Sharks played for six franchises over 938 games in the NHL, totaling 487 points.

Before coaching in LA, Sturm served as general manager and head coach for his native German National Team from 2015 to 2018. Germany would win a Silver Medal in the 2018 Winter Olympics under Sturm.

The rest of the Reign coaching staff will be retained with Sturm, who is the sixth head coach in the history of the AHL affiliate. John Wroblewski left the Reign after two seasons to coach the United States Women’s National Team. Ontario finished the 2021-22 season with a 41-18-9 record.
