After watching on from the front office for the past couple of years, Hawerchuk has decided to make the leap behind the bench this season as head coach of the Orangeville Crushers of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League.
The hockey great - who is also part-owner, president and director of hockey operations of the Crushers - said he felt he could offer something more to the team and the players by taking over coaching duties.
“I enjoy working with the kids. That’s the biggest reason why (I decided to become coach),” Hawerchuk said.
