Toronto, ON – The CWHL is thrilled to announce that NHL Alumni Glenn Healy and Curtis Joseph will be joining the coaching staff at the 2019 CWHL All-Star Game.
The NHL Alumni Association has been a long-standing advocate of the CWHL and continues to support the growth of women’s hockey. Both Healy and Joseph had extensive NHL careers with numerous accolades between them. Both bring tremendous talent and experience to the bench.
Healy, who is now the Executive Director of the NHL Alumni Association, has remained active in the NHL in his role and has joined Sportsnet providing game analysis. Joseph continues to reside in Toronto and is an active member of his community. He most recently wrote a memoir titled “Cujo: The Untold Story of My Life On and Off the Ice.”
Stay tuned for more announcements regarding the 2019 All-Star game!
Glenn is a former goaltender with a 15 year NHL Career, winning a Stanley Cup with The New York Rangers in 1994. He has served as the Director of Player Affairs for the National Hockey League Players’ Association. In his capacity with the NHLPA, he also served as a non-voting member of the National Hockey League Competition Committee.
In Glenn’s well-rounded post-career, he served as hockey color commentator and analyst, first for the CBC and then for TSN. Healy also served as the secondary color commentator for the NHL on TSN and as on ice-level analyst for TSN’s Toronto Maple Leafs telecasts. He moved back to analyzing games for CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada before joining the NHL on the Sportsnet crew.
Know affectionately to hockey fans around the world as Cujo, Curtis Joseph was an unlikely NHL superstar. Hailing from Keswick, Ontario, he didn’t put on a pair of skates until most kids his age were already far along in organized hockey, and he was passed over by every team in the NHL draft. Despite an unorthodox star, he would go on to play eighteen seasons with the St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Phoenix Coyotes and Calgary Flames; be ranked among the all-time greats in several key categories; and win an Olympic gold medal while representing Canada. Joseph is a legend in Toronto, where his fandom rivals that of other beloved Leaf greats, and he’s widely thought of as one of the best goalies of all time.
