Boston Bruins assistant coach Geoff Ward has resigned to become coach of the Mannheim Eagles in Germany's DEL, the teams announced Thursday.

Ward had been part of Bruins coach Claude Julien's staff since the 2007-08 season, winning the Stanley Cup in 2011 and working extensively with the Boston power play, which improved to third in the NHL this season.

Ward has had two previous head coaching stints in Germany with Bad Nauheim EC in 2000-01 and the Iserlohn Roosters in 2006-07, amidst a 20-year coaching career.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
