CNNSI.com - NHL Hockey - Former Oilers coach Low takes over Rangers - Thursday July 13, 2000 10:40 AM (627 words)
NEW YORK (AP) -- Ron Low was hired as coach of the New York Rangers Wednesday, rejoining Glen Sather in New York after resigning as Edmonton's coach under Sather a year ago.
Low emerged as the leading candidate for the Rangers' coaching vacancy last month after Kevin Lowe, the Edmonton coach, decided to stay with the Oilers as general manager, replacing Sather instead of joining him in New York.
Low was 139-162-40 with Edmonton, leading the Oilers to first-round playoff upsets of Dallas and Colorado in 1997 and '98.
Edmonton Oilers Legacy - Ron Low (755 words)
Low played his last hockey game in the 1985-86 season for the Nova Scotia Oilers of the American Hockey League and two years later, would become the man calling the shots from behind the bench for that very same team.
With Low’s easy-going demeanour (though the coach was known to occasionally lose his temper behind the bench) and a lineup comprised of youthful, fast skaters, the Oilers were a run-and-gun team that looked to outlast their opponents.
Low was their leader, and the players he had under his command were happy to give everything they had for him.
