The Medicine Hat Tigers are looking to the past to move into the future.

The club announced this morning Willie Desjardins was coming back to the team as head coach and General Manager.

Desjardins says he has a promise for fans.

Desjardins says, “I’ll try to guarantee to the community that we’ll play hard every night.  We won’t win every night, there’s lots of challenges, there’s lots of good teams.  But, I want to play the right way.  I want to play hard.  I think the team is in a good spot right now.  I’m just excited about moving forward and getting to be part of this community again.”

Desjardins was the head coach of the Tigers from 2002-10 before leaving to become an associate coach for the Dallas Stars.
