A familiar face will rejoin the Red Deer Rebels, but this time on the bench, as Pierre-Paul Lamoureux will be the team’s next assistant coach.

Lamoureux, 28, played three seasons with the Rebels from 2004-07. The Grand Forks, N.D., native was named the team’s new assistant coach in a release on Wednesday.

Before the announcement, Lamoureux was a part-time amateur scout with the Calgary Flames and the director of scouting and an assistant coach with the Fargo Force of the United States Hockey League.

This will be his first coaching job in the Western Hockey League.

In three seasons with the Rebels as a player, the centreman played in 181 games, scoring three goals and 15 assists and had 332 penalty minutes.

After his time with the Rebels, Lamoureux played one season with the Tri-City Storm of the USHL and then played a year for the University of Manitoba.

From 2009-15, Lamoureux was a grad assistant coach at the University of North Dakota, completing his law degree in 2015.

He replaces Steve O’Rourke, who left the Rebels earlier this summer to be an associate coach with the Prince George Cougars.
