The Tampa Bay Lightning have added NHL coaching veteran Rick Bowness to the position of associate coach on head coach Jon Cooper's staff.

"We are extremely pleased to add Rick Bowness to our coaching staff today," vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman said.  "With 24 years of NHL coaching experience as both a head coach and an assistant, we are confident Rick will be a valuable addition.  We look forward to having him behind the bench next season."

Bowness spent the previous seven seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, beginning his tenure there as an assistant and later being elevated to associate coach. The Canucks reached the Stanley Cup Playoffs in all but one of Bowness' time behind the bench, including an appearance in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.

A native of Moncton, New Brunswick, Bowness has served on the coaching staff of six teams during his coaching career, the Winnipeg Jets (1984-89), Boston Bruins (1991-92), Ottawa Senators (1992-96), New York Islanders (1996-98), Phoenix Coyotes (1999-06) and the Canucks (2007-13), in varying capacities.  He was the head coach on five occasions, with the Jets in 1988-89, Bruins in 1991-92, Senators from 1992-96, Islanders from 1996-98 and in Phoenix in 2003-04.
