Bruins Add Ramsay and Ward to Coaching Staff
BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has named Craig Ramsay and Geoff Ward Assistant Coaches.  Ramsay and Ward join Assistant Coach Doug Houda and Goaltending Coach Bob Essensa to round out Head Coach Claude Julien’s staff.

Ramsay comes to the Bruins after spending the last seven years with the Tampa Bay Lightning where he served as the team’s Associate Head Coach.  During his time with Tampa Bay, Ramsay helped lead the Lightning to four consecutive Stanley Cup Playoff appearances, two Southeast Division titles, and a Stanley Cup Championship in 2004.

Prior to joining Tampa Bay during the 2000-2001 season, Ramsay spent eight seasons in NHL coaching and management including stints with the Buffalo Sabres, Florida Panthers, Ottawa Senators and Philadelphia Flyers.

As an NHL player, Ramsay, a native of Weston, Ontario, played from 1971-1985 with the Sabres.  In 1,070 career games, Ramsay scored 252 goals and recorded 420 assists. Ramsay won the Frank J. Selke Trophy  (best defensive forward) in 1985.

Ward comes to Boston after spending the 2006-2007 season in Germany as the head coach of the Iserlohn Roosters, where he led the Roosters to a 18-6-4-24 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record, finishing in 11th place in the 14-team German league. Previously, Ward had spent five campaigns in the Edmonton organization, where, beginning in January 2001, he coached in the American Hockey League.

While with the Oilers, Ward served as Julien’s assistant coach for the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldog’s when the squad worked its way to the AHL's Calder Cup semi-finals in 2002.  Ward took over for Julien as head coach during the 2002-2003 campaign when Julien was hired by the Montreal Canadiens on January 17, 2003.  Later that season the Bulldogs went to the AHL finals and the two head coaches were co-winners of the American Hockey League’s Louis A. R. Pieri Memorial Award, which is given annually to the league’s coach of the year.

Ward, a resident of Manitouwadge, Ontario, has been in the coaching profession since 1994 when he started with Kitchener of the OHL.  He also served as the Edmonton Oilers development coach during their 2005-2006 run to the Stanley Cup Championships.
