NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have added Lane Lambert to the team's coaching staff.

In four seasons as head coach of the club's American Hockey League affiliate Milwaukee Admirals, Lambert compiled a 178-118-37 record.

"Similar to our philosophy on player development, we believe in promoting from within whenever possible," Predators president and general manager David Poile said in a statement Thursday.

"Lane has successfully coached and mentored more than half the players on our current roster, and many more who are coming through the pipeline, so he will fit seamlessly into Barry Trotz's staff."

Eleven members of Nashville's 2011 playoff roster played for the Melfort, Sask., native in Milwaukee.

The Predators also announced the re-signing of goaltending coach Mitch Korn.
