IceCaps name King director of hockey operations

The St. John’s IceCaps today announced changes to the club’s front office staff.

Former IceCaps player and assistant coach Jason King will join the front office as the team’s Director of Hockey Operations, replacing Brad Andrews who is assuming a new position with the Winnipeg Jets organization. In his new role, King will be responsible for managing all team travel and serve as support for the coaching staff.

Glenn Stanford, Chief Operating Officer and Governor of the IceCaps, said King is a perfect fit to fill the void left behind by Andrews.

“Jason is a smart, capable young man with an intimate knowledge of the role from working closely with Brad over the past four years,” said Stanford. “Additionally, Jason’s relationships throughout the American Hockey League will be a huge asset as he enters this new phase of his career with the IceCaps.”

While pleased for Andrews, Stanford says he will be deeply missed by the IceCaps organization.

“Brad’s work ethic was second to none and he served as a great ambassador for our organization and community,” said Stanford. “Over the last four years Brad developed this job into a state of the art position and created such a mold, that it will be so much easier for Jason to step in. We wish Brad and his family all the best in the future.”
