Hockey PEI Staff | June 29th

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Hockey PEI’s High Performance Program management group is pleased to announce the team staff selected to lead the 2023 Team PEI Men’s and Women’s Hockey Canada Winter Games programs. 

After an extensive search and interview process which included some very talented and respected individuals in the hockey community, the selection of Hockey PEI’s next Canada Games coaching staff has been made. During the selection process, Hockey PEI searched for candidates with elite experience in our game, including both high-level playing and coaching backgrounds which in turn could create an elite culture for its program. It also sought individuals with good leadership qualities and strong personality traits while keeping in mind the benefit of finding good hockey coaching attributes and candidates with Canada Games experience. 

With the next Canada Winter Games being hosted right here on PEI, we believe we have assembled two coaching staffs that will establish first-class programs that players and Islanders as a whole will be proud to support.
