Jagger Dirk and Tyler King of the Kootenay Ice are no strangers to playing hockey, but last night they were on the “other side of the whistle” as they stepped in to do a guest coaching gig with the Cranbrook Women’s Learn to Play Hockey League.  The pace was just a tad slower than they are used to, but Dirk and King were terrific sports as they put the ladies through several drills at the Kinsmen Arena.  The Learn to Play League is a development team for women who have never played hockey, but want to learn the game. What better inspiration than being coached by some of the most talented young people in hockey!
