After leaving the Vancouver Canucks organization last month, it didn't take Jeremy Colliton to find a new job and now, he's back in the National Hockey League.

In a post on X on Tuesday morning, the New Jersey Devils announced that they've agreed to terms on a contract with Jeremy Colliton that'll see him join the team as an assistant coach.
"The New Jersey Devils announced today that the team has named Jeremy Colliton as assistant coach to join head coach Sheldon Keefe's staff. Colliton completes the on-ice coaching staff which includes fellow assistants Ryan McGill, Chris Taylor, Sergei Brylin, and Goaltending Coach Dave Rogalski. The announcement was made by President/General Manager Tom Fitzgerald." The Devils said in a release on their website.

Colliton, 39, joined the Vancouver Canucks organization as the head coach of the American Hockey League's Abbotsford Canucks ahead of the 2022-23 season. In two seasons with Abbotsford, Colliton led the team to the Calder Cup Playoffs both years, where they'd lose in the Division Semifinals. In 144 games with Abbotsford, Colliton had a record of 80-50-14.
The Blackie, Alberta native has a bit of experience in the National Hockey League as a coach coming into this new role with the Devils. He spent parts of four seasons as the head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks before being fired 12 games into the 2021-22 season and replaced by Derek King on an interim basis.
