Houda joins new Isles coach Lane Lambert’s staff after six seasons as an assistant with the Detroit Red Wings. He had worked the previous decade in the same role with the Boston Bruins, who won the Stanley Cup in 2011.
Houda also spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Rochester (AHL). The Alberta native played in 561 NHL games with six teams, including two seasons with the Islanders (1996-98). The defenseman also played in 553 AHL games, winning a Calder Cup with Rochester in 1995-96.
