I am very pleased to share the news that Michael Benedict has accepted the role Director of Hockey for the upcoming season. Michael has just moved back to his hometown of Buffalo after coaching men’s hockey at the both the collegiate and junior levels the past five years. His resume is included below. This season Michael is going to principally concentrate his time on teaching Skills Development and assisting our coaches in the integration of those skills into team practices each week throughout the season.
Michael is going to work closely with Jamie Printz on that project. Michael will concentrate on our Boys teams while Jamie is going to oversee Skills Development for our Girls teams.
In addition to Michael & Jamie we are welcoming back Shawn O’Donoghue, Mark Zarbo, Tom Iafallo, Luke Swimline and Adam Bellows to our Skills Instructors team. Allison Gasuik and Nick Smith are joining us this season. We are hopeful of recruiting some other Bison alums to our skills coaching staff. We will share more about our plans as they develop in the next few weeks.
