Munich, Germany - Rookie head coach Axel Kammerer got the axe in Kassel. Canadian Mike McParland was introduced as the new man behind the Huskies bench Tuesday. Three days before, defending DEL champ Krefeld Pinguine made its second head coaching change of the season.

Vasiljevs' hapless stint ends in Krefeld

Bill Stewart, who parted ways with the Mannheim Adler two weeks ago, made a quick comeback to the DEL coaching ranks when he was hired by the slumping Krefeld Pinguine Saturday. The 46-year-old Toronto native replaces Latvian Haralds Vasiljevs, who will resume working as a junior coach in the Penguins organisation.

His hapless tenure lasted only 6 weeks. Krefeld was 2-9 under Vasiljevs and is in danger of ending up in the relegation round.

McParland takes over in Kassel

Canadian Mike McParland was signed through the end of the season. The 45-year-old has been coaching in Switzerland for 15 years and was part of Team Canada’s coaching staff at several international tournaments. His stints in the Swiss National-Liga included Chur, Langnau, Lyss, Herisau, Thurgau and Lausanne.

Kammerer and assistant coach Rupert Meister were fired by Kassel on Monday. The German coaching duo led the Huskies to a 19-23 record. With 10 games to go in the regular season, they are virtually eliminated from playoff contention.
