The Grizzlys announce their 2021 staff
The Olds Grizzlys made their 2020-21 coaching staff official today.
Behind the bench for the Grizzlys will be Scott Atkinson who they hired in January as the replacement to Joe Murphy.
Olds went 1-10-2 to finish off the regular season with Atkinson at the helm. However, despite their poor record, they pushed the Drumheller Dragons to their limit in the postseason. They stole game one on the road 4-1 and then fell short in overtime in game three back at the Olds Sportsplex. The Dragons did go on to win the series 4-1, but Atkinson’s Grizzlys showed plenty of promise.
Joining Atkinson on the bench is returning assistant coach Pete deGraaf for his third season and new assistant coach Austin Ehret. Ehret will also be the team’s equipment manager and athletic trainer.
The team release also noted that director of scouting Jason Petrie and team physician Dr Andrew Jackson would be returning.
Wolverines recruit Ontario defenceman
The Whitecourt Wolverines have had a busy offseason recruiting players from all over the continent.
Today that trend continued after they announced the signing of Zach Hatch (2002) from the Stratford Warriors of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League.
Hatch is a 5’10, 163 lbs defenceman from Elora, Ontario. Last season, in his first year of junior hockey, Hatch scored 5 goals and 18 points in 50 games with the Warriors.
He now becomes the 11th player the Wolverines have signed to a letter of intent this offseason.
