Ford trades in hockey gear for whistle as next chapter of hockey career begins

first_imgAfter splitting time with the Milwaukee Admirals and the South Carolina Stingrays last season of the American Hockey League, and East Coast Hockey League respectively Scott Ford has hung up his skates as far as his playing career is concerned. Ford will still be active with hockey however as he’s accepted an assistant coach position with the Admirals.Ford said last season’s end losing in the ECHL finals was difficult, but as the off season progressed he admitted the motivation to return wasn’t there as it had been in years past.“It was kind of bitter sweet how last year ended losing out in the style that we did. I wasn’t sure if I was going to continue to play or not. I just didn’t feel as much desire as I had in the past to get back on the ice as the season came closer to a start,” he said.- Advertisement -Certainly no stranger to leadership roles having captained a number of teams, getting into coaching seemed to be a natural fit for the Fort St. John alum. After bringing up the possibility in the beginning of the summer, Nashville Predators general manager David Poile followed up with Ford a few weeks ago to see if he was still interested in coaching.“This opportunity came up with Nashville and Milwaukee to stay within the organization to do some coaching and player development. I had spoken with them earlier in the summer upon finishing up in South Carolina and nothing really came to fruition for awhile. A couple of weeks ago David Poile called and offered me a position. It was something where I had to think about for a bit but it was time. It’s a great opportunity to still be involved and to transition into another role within a game that I’ve spent the better part of my life being passionate about.”As for his responsibilities as of now, this time of year is the busiest for Ford. Currently he’s in Nashville with the rest of the Admirals coaching staff going through the initial evaluations of the team’s rookies and prospects.Advertisement “I got my feet wet so to speak today. We’re all down here in Nashville right now for rookie camp through main camp. On the ice today we had our first practice with the prospects and rookies. We practice again tomorrow morning and then we’re off to Tampa for their rookie tournament. It will be cool. They’ve got four teams down there and they kind of do a rookie showcase tournament. It will give me an opportunity to see that side of it. It’s been pretty overwhelming and very busy in the sense of everything is happening so fast and being thrown into the mix.”Ford and the rest of the coaches will return to Nashville for the main camp on September 16.His professional career began in the 2004-2005 season with the Cleveland Barons and Fresno Falcons. Over his time with a number of clubs he tallied totals of 31 regular season goals over his career along with 85 assists. Ford was no stranger to the penalty box amassing 1,055 penalty minutes.His playoff totals as a pro include one goal, 16 assists, and 85 penalty minutes.Advertisementlast_img read more

Man City boosted by the return of inspirational figure for Tottenham trip

first_imgManchester City will be lifted by the return of inspirational captain Vincent Kompany as they bid to reassert their authority this weekend.The Barclays Premier League leaders surrendered their 100 per cent record, and conceded for the first time domestically, as they slipped to a surprise loss to West Ham last weekend.Central defender Kompany missed the game having been forced off with a calf injury during the Champions League loss to Juventus four days previously.The Belgian is now set to return in place of Eliaquim Mangala – alongside whom he had helped keep five successive clean sheets – at Tottenham on Saturday as the Frenchman misses out with a groin problem.Manager Manuel Pellegrini said: “It is important for the team that Vincent has just recovered from his injury. He is the captain and he started the season very well, not only as a defender, but he scored three important goals also.”Kompany’s return, along with that of Samir Nasri after a minor problem, was the welcome fitness news to emerge from Pellegrini’s pre-match press conference.But on the downside, playmaker David Silva remains sidelined with a calf injury and strikers Wilfried Bony and Kelechi Iheanacho have also been ruled out with knocks. Mangala could be out until after next month’s international break, joining the likes of Gael Clichy and Fabian Delph on the longer-term casualty list.Pablo Zabaleta is at least near to a return and Pellegrini is hopeful Silva could feature in Tuesday’s Champions League game at Borussia Monchengladbach.Pellegrini said of the injury list: “It doesn’t seem very long – it is very long! We have had a lot of injured players with different injuries. There is not just one reason for it.“That is why I say it is important to have a squad because you are going to win or lose the title by just one or two points. Normally the difference is not more.” Vincent Kompany 1last_img read more

first_imgCELTIC WILL play Rangers in the Co-operative Insurance League Cup Final on March 20th after Walter Smith’s side beat Motherwell 2-1 at Hampden today.Yesterday Kris Commons inspired Celtic as they destroyed Aberdeen with four goals in the opening 33 minutes to breeze into the final.New signing Commons – who revealed his friend former Celt and ex-Ranger Kenny Miller had persuaded him to go to Parkhead instead of Ibrox- scored the opening goal with a sublime chip into the far corner after five minutes. Former Aberdeen defender Charlie Mulgrew headed the second four minutes later and Thomas Rogne rose to finish for the third after 20 minutes.Anthony Stokes made it 4-0 before Scott Vernon’s headed reply.Many of 12,000-odd Aberdeen fans had taken Celtic’s fourth goal as a signal to desert Hampden with their dream of a first final since May 2000 having already virtually disappeared.Celtic dropped the pace, sparing the Dons the spectre of a repeat of that historic 9-0 Scottish Premier League defeat in November, safe in the knowledge that they will face Motherwell or Rangers in the final.

With the Swiss needing four goals to progress, they went one better and thrashed a despondent Belgium side to claim their place in next June’s Nations League semi-final.At the heart of the comeback was none other than former Stoke City and Bayern Munich playmaker Shaqiri, who set up two and had a hand in another goal.With Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard looking decidedly below par, plenty of Liverpool fans were quick to mock the Belgium skipper for failing to deliver a performance equal to Shaqiri’s masterclass.
