LETHBRIDGE – Hurricanes director of player development Bob Bartlett has been honoured by the Western Hockey League.

Bartlett was presented with the league’s Distinguished Service Award by commissioner Ron Robison in a ceremony at the start of the Hurricanes’ game against the Tri-City Americans Tuesday, Feb. 13. An award is presented in each conference every year, to recognize work behind the scenes over an extended time.

Bartlett returned to the Hurricanes organization in 2016. He first worked as a scout for the Lethbridge Broncos from 1974-85 and was described as instrumental in helping Lethbridge gain a new franchise. He was general manager of the Hurricanes from 1990-95.

He is enshrined in the Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame as a Builder, the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame, and the Lethbridge Hurricanes/Broncos Hall of Fame.
