Myles Fee has taken his coaching skills to south Florida after he was recently hired as an assistant coach by the National Hockey League’s Florida Panthers.
Fee started his career as video coach for the New York Rangers and joined the Edmonton Oilers after just one season in New York.
After seven seasons in Alberta’s capital, Fee joined the American Hockey League’s Charlotte Checkers, helping to guide the Carolina Hurricanes affiliate to a Calder Cup championship in 2018-19.
After four seasons with Charlotte, Fee moved on to Buffalo, where he spent the last three seasons.
Fee was also video coach for Team Europe, which won the silver medal in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.
Now Fee is one of several people hired as assistant coaches for the Panthers.
It was at the World Cup that Fee developed a relationship with Panthers coach Paul Maurice, who was coach of Team Europe, and they have stayed in touch since then.
When Maurice was hired by Florida, he asked for and received permission from the Sabres to talk to Fee about joining the Panthers.
