He was the Technical Director of the Hamilton Minor Hockey Council when it first formed in 1989 and moved over to the Hamilton Huskies Minor Hockey Club (1980s to present). With the Huskies / Reps he held various positions over the years. Technical Director of Development (for coaches & players); Coach; Vice President; General Manager and currently the President of Hamilton Huskies.
