Montreal Canadiens name former defenceman Francis Bouillon player development coach

MONTREAL — Former defenceman Francis Bouillon was named player development coach in a reorganization of the Montreal Canadiens’ development department announced Wednesday.

Bouillon played for the Canadiens from 1999 to 2009 and again from 2012 to 2014 after a three-year stint in Nashville.

The New York native who grew up in Montreal retired after one season in the Swiss league in 2014-15.

He replaced Rob Ramage, who was named director of player development, bumping Martin Lapointe up to director of player personnel.

Vincent Riendeau, formerly assistant general manager of the Canadiens’ AHL team, was named director of goalie development and pro scout.
