Hartsburg has been a head coach several times (see Puck Rakers for details), and Acton spent most of the last 10 years with the Maple Leafs. Hartsburg coached draft prospect D-man Ryan Murray for two years in juniors with the Everett Silvertips, and had this to say about him "He's just a really intense guy, " Murray told NHL.com. "Every day he teaches you to work hard. You can't take a shift off when he's your coach or you're going to hear about it. He really taught me that you have to play consistent if you're going to play at a high level. He taught me that if you're going to play at a high level you have to play hard every night and you have to show up every single day". (stick tap to @RedditCBJ for the tip on this quote).
He sounds like the kind of guy the CBJ needs.
