Anaheim Ducks Assistant Coach Bob Woods Accepts Job With Saskatoon


The Anaheim Ducks will be looking for a new assistant coach this summer.

According to Eric Stephens of the Orange Country Register, Bob Woods has accepted both the head coach and general manager positions with the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL.

Woods, who just completed his third season as assistant coach with the Ducks, will take his experiences behind the bench from both Anaheim and Washington with him to Saskatoon.

In his three seasons with the Ducks, Woods helped guide Anaheim to two consecutive Pacific Division titles as well as the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference for the 2013-2014 season.

While in Washington, Woods was paired with current Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau. They both led the Capitals to the President’s Trophy in the 2009-2010 season.

Before joining the big club in DC, Woods brought the Calder Cup championship to the Hershey Bears of the AHL in 2009.

As a player, Woods spent majority of his time in the ECHL. He still holds the record for most career goals by a defenseman with 159.
