CANADIENS ASSISTANT COACH ALEX BURROWS SEEMS TO HAVE CAUGHT THE COACHING BUG

MAR 9, 2021  (17H25)      COOPER GODIN
On Tuesday, Montreal Canadiens assistant coach Alexandre Burrows addressed the media for the first time since being promoted on February 24th.

Burrows told reporters that he was shocked when Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin gave him a call to replace Kirk Muller. Growing up, Burrows was a Canadiens fan, and when he was a member of the Vancouver Canucks, he would watch the Habs game before taking to the ice for his own game.

He mentioned that he left at 6am to head to Ottawa for his first day as assistant coach of the Montreal Canadiens. Burrows let his wife tell his kids, who were sleeping, that he was going to coach for Montreal, and he added that his kids were very excited.

The 39-year-old says coaching for him is as close to playing as it gets. His contract ends at the end of the 2020-21 season, and while he is very excited for the challenge ahead with Montreal, he isn't focused on his next contract.

The Pincourt, Quebec native spent parts of 13 seasons in the NHL playing for the Vancouver Canucks and the Ottawa Senators. In 913 regular season games, he had 409 points (205 G, 204 A), 1,134 penalty minutes, and was a +104. In 85 career playoff games, he tallied 39 points (19 G, 20 A), 142 penalty minutes, and is a +8.
