Wings add Renney to coaching staff

The Detroit Red Wings have hired former Edmonton Oilers coach Tom Renney as an associate coach.

Renney, 57, signed a three-year deal with Wings on Thursday.

After winning just 32 games last season, the Oilers in May announced that Renney’s contract would not be renewed for the 2012-13 season.

He has coached for the Oilers, New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks, and has a career 260-255-9-68 NHL record.
