Milwaukee Admirals head coach Lane Lambert to join Nashville Predators staff

The Milwaukee Admirals will hold a media availability session tomorrow at the Bradley Center to "make a major announcement regarding their coaching staff", with Admirals head coach Lane Lambert in attendance. It's been speculated that Lambert is a prime candidate to fill an assistant coaching position in Nashville as Brent Peterson transitions to more of an off-ice role, so perhaps that decision has indeed been made.

Lambert just completed his fifth season with the Preds organization, and his fourth as the Admirals head coach. Considering the emphasis that Nashville places on developing its own talent through the minor league system, he's been as critical a "behind the scenes" player as there is over the last several years. Stay tuned to this channel, as we'll have updates on this as soon as we receive them!

UPDATE: Thanks to @adsrountable for the tip, as the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting that indeed, Lane's getting the call:

Lane Lambert, who coached the American Hockey League team the last four seasons, has been hired as an assistant with the Nashville Predators - Milwaukee's NHL affiliate - the Journal Sentinel has learned.

The Admirals will hold a press conference Thursday afternoon to announce the promotion.

Milwaukee's Andreas Thuresson, who played for Lambert all four years, was unaware of the news when reached by phone.

"He's a great coach and an honest coach," Thuresson said. "He loves the game. He wants to win every single game and is great at developing players. I learned a lot from him. He took care of me and believed in me."

Let's all hope that this is just another example of the Predators development great talent down on the farm, only this time, it's behind the bench.
