2014/15 season with the Islanders in the city he calls his home 'Peterborough' .
Yardley commented - 'I'm looking forward to playing back in Peterborough, it's been a while since I stepped in the rink! With what Dave and Jo
are doing for Peterborough hockey it's an exciting time and I'm just thrilled to be a part of it. We've got some good players this year and with
my experience I hope I can help as much as I can. I am looking forward to working with Stevie this year. He is a good coach and I'm sure he can
take us to the next level.
Joining the coaching staff and assisting newly appointed Head coach Steven Johnson will be another familiar face to Peterborough Hockey Stephen Wren.
Wren played many years for the Islanders and will be looking forward to using his playing knowledge and experiences in his new role as Assistant coach.
