ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Scott Niedermayer is ready to teach the Anaheim Ducks a few more things about winning.
The former Ducks captain and four-time Stanley Cup champion defenceman will be an assistant to Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau this season, the Ducks announced Friday.
Niedermayer won't make every road trip with the club, and he won't stand behind the Ducks' bench during most games. But the former Canadian Olympic captain and Norris Trophy-winning defenceman will take a more active role with the Ducks after spending the previous two seasons in player development for Anaheim.
Niedermayer was a six-time all-star who won the Norris Trophy in 2004 while playing for New Jersey. He won three Stanley Cup titles with the Devils and one with Anaheim.
