Mallette named an assistant coach

The Kelowna Rockets have hired a former player as Dan Lambert's assistant coach.

Kris Mallette (Ma-let) will be behind the bench running the teams defensive core when the 2014-2015 season begins.

The 35 year-old played parts of three seasons with the Rockets from 1996 until 1999 before being traded to the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Mallette was a third round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers in 1997.  

Mallette was most recently an associate coach with the BCHL's Vernon Vipers.
