The Edmonton Oilers have added to their coaching staff by hiring Glen Gulutzan, Trent Yawney, and Manny Viveiros as assistant coaches, the team announced Friday.

Gulutzan spent the last two seasons as the head coach of the Calgary Flames, leading them to a playoff berth in 2016-17. He previously worked as an assistant with the Vancouver Canucks for three years, and was head coach of the Dallas Stars for two seasons, missing the playoffs in both years.

Yawney played 593 NHL games as a defenseman with the Chicago Blackhawks, Flames, and St. Louis Blues. He became head coach of the Blackhawks in 2005-06, but was let go midway through the following season. He's spent the last four seasons as an assistant coach with the Anaheim Ducks.

Viveiros had a cup of coffee in the NHL, skating in 29 games with the Minnesota North Stars in the '80s. He led the Swift Current Broncos to a WHL championship as the club's head coach this spring.
