Trent Klatt

New York Islanders head amateur scout Trent Klatt will be vacating his position with the team after July 1 and taking over the head coaching job for the Grand Rapids High School boys hockey team (Duluth News Tribune, May 7).

Klatt told general manager Garth Snow last fall that the 2014-15 season would be his final one with the Islanders. He will continue to scout for the organization on a limited basis. Klatt?has been with the Islanders since 2010 and took over running the Islanders' draft table after they let go of former assistant general manager Ryan Jankowski.

The ex-NHLer cited the amount of travel he has had to do as the reason for stepping down from his position with the Islanders.
