Stothers has coached Los Angeles’ AHL affiliate for the last six seasons, leading the Manchester Monarchs to a Calder Cup in 2014-15 and then coaching Ontario for the next five seasons. In his time as an AHL head coach, he only missed the playoffs once in five seasons and this year, Ontario was in the midst of battling for a playoff spot before the season was cancelled.
