Moose Assistant Rumored to Join Ottawa Senators Coaching Staff

The Ottawa Senators have been in the trenches of the off-season over the past few days. Nolan Baumgartner is currently an assistant coach under Mark Morrison’s Manitoba Moose and has ties to current Senators head coach Travis Green.

Both Baumgartner and Green worked in the Vancouver Canucks franchise from the 2017-18 season until they were fired mid-season in 2021-22. With Green getting the head coaching gig in Ottawa, he is expected to make his new gig a comfy fit by bringing in Baumgartner as they have a long working relationship.

Per Brent Wallace on Coming in Hot, he said that Travis Green will bring Nolan Baumgartner, Mike Yeo, and Daniel Alfredsson to his coaching staff.

While nothing is confirmed yet, the Moose will now have to fill a coaching vacancy of their own as Shawn Simpson also verbally confirmed the hires in Ottawa.
