There will be a new look behind the Stallions bench this season as Chris Valentine
has been hired to take the reigns as Head Coach for the 09-10 season.
joins the Stallions organization after more than 20 years experience coaching, playing and scouting at the pro level.
Valentine is currently working as a Financial Security Advisor with Freedom 55 Financial and is thrilled to get back in the game.
"I have missed being in the game over the past two years.
Chris came highly recommended from our personnel, and considering he is a member of the Ottawa Senators Alumni, it seemed like a perfect fit for our younger players to gain some knowledge from a former NHL player.
Players need to be accountable and understand that being a Stallion is a privilege and not a right and Chris
will ensure that message is maintained this season.
We also need to put a better product on the ice and ensure a professional approach in everything we do this season, Chris Valentine
will enforce that."
Joining Valentine behind the bench will be current OHL Scout and Owner of Top Draft Sports Management, Shane Sullivan.
It will simply allow Chris
and I to work much more efficiently then most new coaches stepping on to the scene."
We feel Valentine
will be very good for developing these younger players over the next few years".
