Jesse Wallin has taken on a new role with the Red Deer Rebels. Wallin will remain as the Western Hockey League club’s head coach for a second season, and will also serve as the vice-president of hockey operations. Randy Peterson, the former VP of hockey operations, is now the Rebels’ director of scouting and player development and remains as the team’s alternate governor. “This move was made because Jesse is hands on with the team on a day-by-day basis. He is in the best position to make decisions that affect the hockey operations. The move allows Randy to concentrate strictly on scouting and player development,” said Rebels president and owner Brent Sutter, in making the announcement on Thursday. Wallin is a former Rebels captain who was selected by Detroit in the first round of the 1996 NHL entry draft and was part of the Red Wings 2002 Stanley Cup championship team. He joined the Rebels coaching staff as an assistant in 2005.
