The Pembina Valley Hawks will have co-coaches behind the bench for the 2018-2019 Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League season.
Jeff Andrews and Jeremy Winslow will guide the Hawks next season replacing Rylan Price.
“For both of us it’s an opportunity to work with kids who want to get better and want to make hockey kind of a priority,” said Andrews who was the head coach of the Pembina Valley Hawks when they captured the 2012 Esso Cup National Female AAA Midget Hockey Championship. “When you have the opportunity to work with athletes like that it makes coaching very enjoyable.”
Andrews was the head coach of the Zone 4 High School Hockey League's Morden Thunder last season while Winslow was an assistant coach with the Pembina Valley Hawks AAA Bantam team.
The Hawks were in a battle for fourth place with the Winnipeg Thrashers and Eastman Selects for most of this past season but won just two of their final nine games and finished one point back of the eighth place Central Plains Capitals and missed the playoffs.
Andrews, Winslow and assistant coach Brendan Edie will get an early start on the upcoming season.
The three will supervise the Hawks Spring Camp at the end of the month.
The camp will be held May 26 & 27 at the Access Event Centre in Morden.
