About this Speaker

Daniel Jacob enters his first season as Assistant Coach for the San Diego Gulls. Jacob joins the Anaheim Ducks organization after serving as Assistant Coach with the Laval Rocket under head coach Joël Bouchard for three seasons (2018-21). He helped guide Laval to an 83-67-14-10 record, including a 23-9-3-1 record in 2020-21 to win the Frank S. Mathers Trophy as winners of the Canadian Division while posting the second-highest points percentage in the AHL (.694).

Prior to his stint with Laval, Jacob worked alongside Bouchard in the same capacity to lead the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada to back-to-back President Cup Finals appearances in 2016-17 and 2017-18. With Jacob on staff, the Armada never missed the playoffs, posting an impressive 160-80-18-14 record, and winning the Jean-Rougeau Trophy in 2017-18 as the QMJHL’s regular-season champions. Jacob joined Hockey Canada coaching staff on 2 occasions: as an assistant for the U-17 and for the gold medal-winning Men’s National Under-18 Team at the 2017 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.

Prior to making his coaching debut, the St-Jean-sur-Richelieu native suited up for five seasons with the McGill University Redmen where he recorded 16-21=37 points and 369 PIM in 108 contests. The former defenseman also sported the colors of the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage and Austria’s Innsbruck HC. He also spent 4 years in Serbia playing for HK Novi Sad, HK Partizan and finally representing Serbia in the 2009 and 2010 World Championships. Jacob graduated from McGill University with a kinesiology degree and served as director of the McGill Redmen Hockey School for four years. He also owns Jacob Hockey Inc., a development program for hockey players.
