The Moose Jaw Warriors announced Thursday the hiring of Trevor Weisgerber as the WHL team's assistant coach.
Weisgerber, a product of Vibank, played his midget AAA hockey with the Moose Jaw Warriors.
"I really enjoyed my time in Moose Jaw," Weisgerber told the Moose Jaw Times-Herald. "It's close to home and everything about it was ideal. I loved playing here and just being back is great. It's a great hockey community."
After a junior A career with the SJHL's Beardy's Rage and Yorkton Terriers, Weisgerber played at Lake Superior State University before embarking on a seven-year career in the Central Hockey League with the Oklahoma City Blazers, San Angelo Saints, Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees, Lubbock Cotton Kings and Rocky Mountain Rage.
Weisgerber, who worked as an assistant coach with the SJHL's Kindersley Klippers last season, replaces Kevin Higo as the assistant to Warriors head coach Dave Hunchak.
