#Isles will officially name Brent Thompson assistant coach today.
UPDATE: Official announcement here. Fornabaio says they're also promoting Bridgeport video coach Matt Bertani. [Cue "WHen will they get a REAL NHL video cowch?!?]
A young coach on the rise, Thompson was the head coach of the Islanders AHL affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2011-12.
Seems like it was for real coaching showing some emotion back there abuse of officials.
