'In 1996-97 the Sabres brought Charlie back to the organization. He had a serious interest in coaching after he retired, and the Sabres offered him a contract that would allow him to be a playing assistant coach with their farm team in Rochester. Charlie jumped at the opportunity and even had a chance to play one last NHL game before retiring. Since then Charlie has been an active coach, serving as an NHL assistant for both the New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers.'
