Moose Jaw Warriors hire longtime NHL assistant Tim Hunter as head coach

MOOSE JAW, Sask. - The Moose Jaw Warriors have hired Tim Hunter as their new head coach.

Hunter spent 14 years as an NHL assistant, most recently with the Washington Capitals in 2013. Before that he was an assistant under Ron Wilson with the Toronto Maple Leafs from 2008 to 2011.

The 53-year-old Calgary native played 815 NHL games with the Flames, Quebec Nordiques, Vancouver Canucks and San Jose Sharks. He won the Stanley Cup as co-captain of the Flames in 1989.

This is the first head coaching job of Hunter's career.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
