New Man in Moose Jaw

Regina based media mogul Rod Pedersen is reporting that the Moose Jaw Warriors are expected to name Mike Stothers as their new head coach. He has a NHL background as both a player (30 games) and as a coach (2 years). Stothers was behind the bench of the OHL's Owen Sound Attack for 5 seasons so obviously is well known by Warriors Director of Hockey Operations Alan Millar.

It's also expected that assistant coach Mike Vandenberghe will return in the same capacity for the 2011-12 season.

Other recent WHL vacancies have been filled by new head scout Dan Bonar (Calgary) and head coach Mark Ferner (Everett).

Bonar is the new head scout for the Hitmen, not head coach.

Mike Williamson remains the head coach, as he has been for the last two years.
