Troy Ward replaces Don Hay as coach of WHL's Vancouver Giants

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Giants have hired Troy Ward as their new head coach.

Ward takes over the WHL team after three seasons as coach of the AHL's Abbotsford Heat, the Calgary Flames' top minor-league affiliate.

"It's an honour," Ward said in a statement. "You talk about the WHL and the history of the league and everything that goes with it and the exposure, and obviously Vancouver is right there at the top."

Ward takes over for longtime head coach Don Hay, who left for the Kamloops Blazers.

Quote of the Day

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
