The position reunites Cassidy with George McPhee, president of hockey operations at VGK, who gave Cassidy his first NHL job in 2002 with the Washington Capitals.

"I told George, I'm gonna get it right this time," Cassidy said.

Cassidy declined to reveal details about his contract, but said he's exceptionally pleased with the arrangement and that there is no issue there.

"Contract wise, we're keeping it in-house," he said.
