As expected, the Atlanta Thrashers named Craig Ramsay the fifth head coach in team history on Thursday afternoon. Here's the press release from the team:

The Atlanta Thrashers have named Craig Ramsay the fifth head coach in franchise history, according to General Manager Rick Dudley.
 
Ramsay, 59, has nearly 40 years of NHL experience as a player, coach and talent evaluator in six different NHL organizations including the Buffalo Sabres, Florida Panthers, Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins.
 
 “Craig is very well-respected in the hockey community and we’re excited to add a coach of his caliber to our organization” said Dudley. “He is widely regarded as an excellent teacher and he is the right choice to help further develop our team and lead us to our ultimate goal.”
 
Most recently Ramsay served as an assistant coach for the Bruins from 2007 to 2010. While in Boston, Ramsay helped the Bruins reach the post-season each year, while capturing the Eastern Conference’s best record during the 2008-09 season. The Bruins advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in both 2009 and 2010.
