The Essa Stallions have named David Lang the team's new assistant coach.

Lang grew up in nearby Keswick, ON. He is the younger brother of Bill & Chad Lang, both of whom were prominent players in the OHL in the early 90's for the North Bay Centennials and Peterborough Petes, and both were selected in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars.

"I am incredibly excited about this opportunity that both Stephane & Sylvain have given me," said Lang. "It's very exciting to be apart of this organization, and I am looking forward to being apart of something special here in Essa. I've learned from some very knowledgeable people in the hockey community over the years, which I aim to bring to the table. Keeping in mind that I am also here to learn from Sylvain, and ultimately bring that championship banner to Essa."

Lang grew up playing his minor hockey in the Georgina Minor Hockey Association, primarily for his father William

David spent 3 years in a scouting and player development role with the Lone Star Brahmas of the NAHL. He was a part of 2 playoff run seasons under the tutelage of Head Coach Dan Wildfong

In 2014, David moved on to become Special Assistant to the GM of the Lindsay Muskies of the OJHL under Head Coach and GM Dan West. While there, the program graduated multiple players to Major Junior (OHL, QMJHL), NCAA, and U Sports programs.
