Flames add Geoff Ward, Ryan Huska to Bill Peters’ staff

Bill Peters will have a couple more experienced coaches on his new staff.

Geoff Ward and Ryan Huska will join the new Calgary Flames head coach as associate coach and assistant coach, respectively, the club announced Thursday.

Ward spent the last three seasons as a New Jersey Devils assistant after occupying the same role with the Boston Bruins for seven years before that.

Huska was the head coach of the AHL's Stockton Heat for the last three campaigns, and he also guided the Flames affiliate for one season when it was known as the Adirondack Flames.

Peters was hired by Calgary on April 23, three days after leaving the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Flames' coaching staff already includes assistants Martin Gelinas, Jamie Pringle, and Jordan Sigalet.
