Ron Rolston earns chance at NHL coaching job


‘”Ron has had a tremendous influence on the continued rise of American players through seven successful years at the NTDP,” Jim Johannson, assistant executive director of hockey operations at USA Hockey, said when Rolston left the program in July 2011 to coach the Sabres’ American Hockey League team in Rochester. He led the Americans to the Calder Cup Playoffs last spring and has them in the top eight in the Western Conference this season.’
