The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club is pleased to announce that Senior Vice President, Director of Hockey Operations/Assistant General Manager Craig Heisinger has been named to the management staff for Canada’s National Men’s Team participating in the 2013 Spengler Cup. The 2013 Spengler Cup will take place from Dec. 26-31 in Davos, Switzerland. This will mark the 30th year that Canada participates in the Spengler Cup.

Heisinger joins Brad Treliving and Brad Pascall on the management side while Doug Shedden was named Head Coach with Serge Pelletier as Assistant Coach.

Heisinger has worked with Team Canada on two previous occasions, serving as the Equipment Manager at the 1997 IIHF World Championship, winning a Gold Medal, and the 1998 Olympic Winter Games.

Heisinger is in his third season with the Winnipeg Jets in his role as Senior Vice-President & Director, Hockey Operations/Assistant General Manager. In his role, Heisinger also serves as the General Manager of the St. John's IceCaps, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets. Heisinger joined the Jets organization after working with the Manitoba Moose in different capacities throughout the team’s 15-year existence in both the International Hockey League and American Hockey League. Most notably, he served as Manitoba’s General Manager for the final nine seasons during which time the Moose accumulated a record of 381-254-35-50 (0.588 winning percentage) and reached the Calder Cup Playoffs in eight of those years, including a berth in the Calder Cup Final in 2009.

Canada’s National Men’s Team will be made up of Canadians that are playing professional hockey in Switzerland and Europe, and could also include American Hockey League players on loan from NHL teams. The roster will be announced in mid-December. The Spengler Cup, held annually since 1923, is the oldest professional international hockey tournament in the world.
