Bruins assistant coach Geoff Ward has resigned and is leaving the NHL [1], the Bruins announced Thursday.

Ward, who was responsible for the team’€™s power play, is headed to Germany to become the head coach of the Mannheim Eagles of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga.

Ward had been with the Bruins for seven years, joining the team when Claude Julien [2] was brought in. Despite the power play’€™s struggles over the years, Ward was responsible for a very productive Bruins group that finished with the third-best power play efficiency in the NHL [3].

If Ward’€™s new team sounds familiar to Bruins fans, it should. Dennis Seidenberg [4] spent the 2012-13 playing for the Mannheim Eagles with his brother, Yannic.
