This past month, the Niverville Nighthawks hired a homegrown player development coach to join their growing staff. On April 20, the club announced that Kayden Jarvis of Winnipeg has come aboard.

Jarvis’s role will be develop local talent that comes to the Nighthawks via the MJHL draft and other means.

Jarvis spent two seasons as a player in the MJHL, taking the ice for the Winkler Flyers from 2014 to 2016. More recently, he has been on staff with the RINK Training Centre in Winnipeg.

“Kayden brings a wealth of knowledge and a creative approach,” says Kelvin Cech, the team’s head coach and general manager. “Jarv is a great guy. He’s got great character. This is his life, his full-time profession. He’s from here, he knows the area, and he knows the players that are coming up through the system.”

A key component, Cech adds, is that Jarvis is highly adaptable and knows what’s most important in players from a skills perspective.

“Another great thing about him is he knows how to apply that to today’s players, and those coming into junior hockey,” Cech says. “He’s a great asset for me to have for the guys to learn and to go back to the basics, as that is the kind of stuff that shows up when it counts the most.”
