EL SEGUNDO, CA — On June 11, Los Angeles Kings assistant coach Mark Hardy resigned his position with the team in the wake of the fourth-degree sexual abuse charge he is facing in Washington, D.C., following a May 21 incident.
Hardy, in his second stint with the Kings as an assistant coach, also played two stints with the Kings as a defenseman (1979-88 and 1992-94) during his 15-year playing career in the National Hockey League.
His first stint with the Kings as an assistant coach was from 1999-2006.
The Kings had no comment on Hardy’s resignation, other than to say that a search for his replacement will begin immediately.
