Hurricanes Add Development Coach in Daniel Bochner



Carolina Hurricanes, Development Coach, Daniel Brochner

On Wednesday, the Hurricanes announced the addition of Daniel Bochner as a Development Coach in the organization.

Bochner heads to Raleigh after five seasons as a coach in the Kontinental Hockey League with SKA St. Petersburg.  The 38-year old had been an assistant coach with the organization since the 2020-2021 campaign and was the Director of Player Development and Head Player Development Coach for the Russian Ice Hockey Federation from 2018-22, according to the release.

As a player, Bochner competed with the Israeli National Team, appearing in 10 World Championships from 2001-2011. His professional career saw him spend time in Canada and across Europe before retiring in 2010.

The addition of Bochner is a major win for Carolina. Not only has he helped develop some of the top players in the KHL, including Hurricanes’ top prospect Alexander Nikishin, but he will have a strong connection with current Hurricanes who hail from Russia.

Both Andrei Svechnikov and Dmitry Orlov are from Russia, along with forward Vasily Ponomaryov, who will vie for a spot on the opening night roster in Carolina.

Bringing on an experienced coach in Brochner will only strengthen the pipeline of Hurricanes from Russia to Raleigh.
