From whl.ca:

BRONCOS NAME JAMIE HEWARD ASSISTANT COACH
2012-08-23
Swift Current, SK – Swift Current Bronco General Manager and Head Coach, Mark Lamb, is pleased to announce that Jamie Heward has been named Assistant Coach/Director of Player Development with the hockey club. Heward will join Lamb and current Assistant Coach, Darren Evjen behind the bench for the upcoming season.

The 41-year-old Heward played 394 regular season games in the NHL playing with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Nashville Predators, New York Islanders, Columbus Blue Jackets, Washington Capitals, Los Angeles Kings and Tampa Bay Lightning where he recorded 124 points (38-86-124) and 221 penalty minutes. Heward also spent a few seasons in the Swiss-A League and one in the KHL.

Heward was selected 16th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft and played a complete four seasons with the Regina Pats of the WHL before embarking on his pro-career.

“His (Jamie) rich hockey experience makes him the perfect guy for the job,” announces General Manager and Head Coach, Mark Lamb. “With our young group of defencemen and his extensive experience playing defence in the NHL he will not only help our players, but our prospects coming up through our organization as well. Jamie will also be a great role model in the player’s transition from midget to junior and junior to pro.”

Heward will focus primarily on scouting the Western Hockey League and working with the organization’s prospects.

“I am really happy to be here,” states Jamie Heward. “I know the hockey staff quite well and I think it will be a great opportunity for me. I have been retired for three years now so I have been watching lots of hockey, but I think it’s time to get back into it and help the players and prospects out as much as I can.”

The Broncos would like to welcome Jamie, his wife Ticia and their children Blake and Irelyn to the organization.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection https://t.co/UD8JrxQSwG #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
