The Halifax Mooseheads have hired a new assistant coach.

Liam Heelis served as interim head coach of the McGill University men's program for the past two seasons. Before that, he spent two years as the team's assistant coach.

"We are excited and thrilled to welcome Liam to our organization. He comes highly recommended," said General Manager Cam Russell in a news release.

"Liam's hard work, hockey IQ and leadership are all qualities that make him a tremendous asset in helping our young group moving forward."

The 30-year-old Georgetown, ON native graduated from Acadia University with a BSc. in Psychology. While in Wolfville, he played for the Axeman and captained the 2014 AUS Champion team.

He has since gone on to get his MA in Sport Psychology at McGill.

Heelis joins the recently hired assistant coach Brad MacKenzie and recently promoted head coach Sylvain Favreau.
