TUCSON, Arizona — The Tucson Roadrunners have promoted Dennis Potvin to head coach, replacing Jay Varady who is now with the Coyotes.

“It's an honor to be named head coach of the Roadrunners,” said Potvin. “We have a great group of players in Tucson and I’m looking forward to developing our prospects while building upon the winning foundation that we’ve established.”

Potvin previously served as assistant coach of Tucson's American Hockey League Team.

The Roadrunners will play a shortened, 40-game schedule beginning February 5th at the Tucson Arena against San Jose. It will be their fifth season as Arizona's AHL affiliate.
