Team Canada Names Peter DeBoer Assistant Coach for 2010 IIHF World Championships in Germany
Panthers Head Coach Peter DeBoer
SUNRISE, FL – Mark Messier, Team Canada general manager for the 2010 IIHF World Championship, announced on Tuesday that Florida Panthers Head Coach Peter DeBoer has been named to Team Canada’s coaching staff for the World Championships, which runs May 7-23 in Cologne and Mannheim, Germany.
 
DeBoer, 41, has served as Florida’s head coach for the last two seasons, compiling a 72-65-23 record. He guided the Panthers to their second best mark in franchise history (41-30-11) during his first year behind the bench.

 
"I'm excited," said DeBoer. "I had a chance to coach with Hockey Canada before over the years and it's always an honor to go and try to help represent your country.

"It's a little bittersweet. Obviously the only chance you get to go and work in this tournament is if you're out of the playoffs but hopefully it will put a good spin on the end of the year and get us ready for next year."

“One of my priorities in putting together this coaching staff was to find individuals that shared a common philosophy and will be able to instill that philosophy in the players as quickly as possible,” said Messier.  “In a short tournament, synergy will play an important role with our staff.  All three are proven winners (Head Coach- Craig MacTavish; Asst. Coach – Peter DeBoer; Asst. Coach – Billy Moores), and I am very happy they have committed to the challenge.”

On the international level, DeBoer was a member of the coaching staff on Team Canada’s 2005 Gold Medal winning junior team and also served as an assistant coach at the 1998 World Junior Championships. In addition, he served on the coaching staff for the 2007 Canada-Russia Super Series.
 
Prior to joining the Panthers, DeBoer spent seven years as the head coach of the Kitchener Rangers, earning 297 wins with a .676 winning percentage, while guiding Kitchener to the 2003 Memorial Cup. The Dunnville, Ontario native amassed 539 OHL wins while coaching the Detroit Whalers (1995-97), Plymouth Whalers (1997-2001) and the Kitchener Rangers (2001-08), earning OHL Coach of the Year honors in 1999 and 2000. DeBoer was also named the 2000 Canadian Hockey League Coach of the Year.
 
DeBoer, a 12th round selection of the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1988, played two seasons professionally with the Milwaukee Admirals (IHL).
