Prior to Friday’s game, Don Herrington, citing immediate family concerns, tendered his resignation as Head Coach of the Welland Jr. Canadians.
We thank Don for his commitment to our team, and are wishing nothing but the best for him and family.
A search for a new head coach is well underway.
In the interim, Assistant Coach Brady Afelskie has been running the bench, and will continue in this capacity until a new head coach is named.
He becomes the youngest coach in franchise history, and last night, the team awarded him with the game puck in honour of his first head coaching win.
