- Submitted by

The West Van Hockey Academy is excited to announce the hiring of former Prince George Cougars General Manager Todd Harkins.

Harkins joins the West Van as the Director of Program Development and he will also take the reins as Head Coach of the Bantam Varsity team.

Not only does Harkins have strong connections to the Western Hockey League and BCHL, he also has considerable experience working with, and developing, younger talent. Prior to joining the Prince George Cougars, Harkins was the Hockey Director at the North Shore Winter Club for 12 years, having an instrumental role in building their development program.

“Adding someone of Todd’s experience, passion, and dedication is certainly a tremendous asset for our program, our students, and our families,” said Nathan Fischer, West VanAcademy Founder and Director. “Todd is keen to get to work on future program development plans, and his enthusiasm for coaching and helping players develop to their fullest potential is very apparent.”

It was also announced that Yashar Farmanara will be departing operational and ownership roles at the West Van Academy, deciding to step away to pursue interests outside of hockey. Farmanara helped build the Academy as a co-founder and has also served as the Elite 15 coach the previous two seasons.

Everyone wishes Yashar the best in his new endeavours and opportunities as he moves forward.
