He was a two-time All-Star. He played three and a half seasons with the Sherwood Park Crusaders and was team captain in the 2010 /2011 season. He finished his AJHL career with the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. He then went on to play college hockey at NAIT. Since retiring from hockey he decided to get involved in the coaching ranks.
“I’ve been looking to make the move for the last year or two, and Taylor (Harnett) and I have a long history together, and we have done some good things with teams on the ice. Taylor has filled me in on the community, so I am really excited to get started with the team”
“I think I can bring commitment and work ethic, and be a fresh voice for these kids as someone who can relate with them with the on-ice and off-ice trials of playing junior hockey. As far as on-ice hockey goes, move them on to post secondary and get some scholarships, but I’m most looking forward to getting to know these guys as I have heard great things about them.”
“This is something I’ve always been dreaming of, and has been a goal of mine since I stopped playing hockey, Taylor gave me the opportunity to get my foot in the door with coaching, and we’ve just run away with it. In the six years I’ve been coaching in Minor Hockey, I’m very excited to be part of the small community. There is nothing better than small town junior in Canada.” -Lee
