“Everyone in that room has been underachieving,” Nasreddine told reporters in his first media availability as interim head coach. “There are going to be opportunities… you have to get and deserve your opportunity. That’s not going to change. I think it’s like that for every team in every sport. That’s the bottom line — the type of coach I am, it’s the same way. I’ve earned everything [I have] in life and I expect players to do the same thing with their job and how they play.”“We’re not going to reinvent the game,” he added. “I think we gotta get that passion back, that enthusiasm for playing.”Here is what you need to know about the Devils’ interim coach:Where is Alain Nasreddine from?Nasreddine, 44, grew up in Montreal and played for the QMJHL’s Drummondville Voltigeurs and Chicoutimi Sagueneens in junior hockey.Did Alain Nasreddine play in the NHL?Nasreddine played 74 career NHL games as a defenseman between 1998-2008. He was part of the first-ever Florida Panthers draft class in 1993 (sixth round, pick No. 135) but did not find his way into a big-league game with his first franchise. He would get his shot with the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 10, 1998, against — you guessed it — the New Jersey Devils, but he wound up with the Montreal Canadiens by the end of that season and played just 15 games altogether his rookie year.The blueliner bounced from team to team throughout much of his NHL playing career but found a consistent home within the Pittsburgh Penguins organization between 2003-08. He bounced between AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and the Penguins’ roster, playing 44 NHL games in 2006-07 — the most in his NHL career.How long has Alain Nasreddine been coaching?Nasreddine’s connection with Pittsburgh’s organization didn’t end when his playing days did. Then-Pittsburgh general manager Ray Shero — who now manages the Devils — hired Nasreddine as an assistant coach with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in August 2010. The head coach of that team at the time? None other than John Hynes. Nasreddine, Hynes and Shero all remained with that organization until the trio moved to New Jersey in a succession of moves in the 2015 offseason.Notable players Alain Nasreddine has coachedNasreddine spent five seasons as Hynes’ assistant coach with the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Here are some of the notable NHLers he worked with on those teams:Robert Bortuzzo, Bryan Gibbons, Simon Depres, Beau Bennett, Joe Morrow, Jayson Megna, Bobby Farnham, Tom Kuhnhackl, Jeff Zatkoff, Scott Harrington, Brian Dumoulin, Matt Murray, Conor Sheary and Derrick Pouliot. The New Jersey Devils on Tuesday named assistant coach Alain Nasreddine interim head coach shortly after John Hynes was relieved of his duties as head coach.Hynes, who had served as the 17th head coach in Devils franchise history, cedes control on the bench to the assistant who has been with him since he was hired in June 2015. Otherwise, the Devils’ coaching staff remains the same — with the sole exception of pro scout Peter Horachek’s move to a bench job as an assistant to Nasreddine.
