New Jersey Devils Round Out 2024-25 Coaching Staff

Abbotsford Canucks/AHL

The New Jersey Devils have announced that they have hired Jeremy Colliton as their assistant coach, rounding out the team’s coaching staff for the 2024-25 season. Prior to joining the Devils’ coaching staff, Colliton spent five seasons in the Chicago Blackhawks organization, spending just over two seasons as the Head Coach of the Rockford IceHogs as he took them to the Conference Finals in his only full season behind the IceHogs bench before taking over as the Blackhawks’ head coach, replacing Joel Quenneville on November 6th, 2018. The Blackhawks would put up a record of 87-92-26 under Colliton before he was fired on November 6th, 2021. Colliton has spent the last two seasons with the Abbotsford Canucks where he would lead the team to an 80-50-14 record but couldn’t get the team past the second round in either season; he was also an assistant coach for Team Canada during the 2022 Olympics. The Alberta native will be in charge of the Devils’ forwards and the PP.

Colliton, a second-round pick of the New York Islanders in 2003, played in 57 games with the Islanders, scoring three goals and three assists. However, the majority of his playing career was spent with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, where he scored 77 goals and 126 assists for 203 points in 326 games. He also spent two years playing in Sweden.

New Jersey’s 2024-25 Coaching Staff:

Head Coach: Sheldon Keefe

Assistant Coaches: Jeremy Colliton, Ryan McGill, Chris Taylor, and Sergei Brylin
