The Washington Capitals named Scott Arniel and Reid Cashman as assistants Monday to Todd Reirdena€™s coaching staff.

Arniel, 55, is the type of veteran coach the Capitals wanted to add, given Reirdena€™s lack of head coaching experience on the NHL level. Arniel spent the past five seasons as an assistant with the New York Rangers, but coached the Columbus Blue Jackets from 2010-12.

a€œIdeally,a€ general manager Brian MacLellan said last month when asked if Washington wanted to add an assistant with head coaching experience for Reirden. a€œI think that would be the perfect fit. Wea€™re not going to make that a requirement, but if we found a guy who was like that and who could fit in that role, we would do that, yes.a€

Cashman, meanwhile, was promoted from the Hershey Bears, the Capitalsa€™ American Hockey League affiliate.
