Luke Piggott will resume his role as assistant coach and will be beside Lord on the bench all season long. Last season was Piggott’s first as an assistant coach after playing for the Devils for 7 seasons in the Elite League and another 6 in the Devils junior system.
Piggott lifted 2 League titles and 2 Challenge Cups along with a Playoff Championship as a player for the Devils and was behind the bench for last season’s Playoff win, the Devils’ second in a row.
