The most important person in the life of every club is the head coach. The AHL also possesses a head trainer. His responsibilities include implementing the franchise development strategy and motivating good athletes to achieve their goals. Over thirty League teams and over nine summer changes.
The hockey head trainer is now simply obliged to create a new stream of young talent. Let’s take a closer look at hockey head trainer changes in the off-season.
What’s new at Abbotsford?
Classically, the AHL is seen as the path to the NHL for players and coaches alike. Former coach Trent Kall just received an invitation to the Vancouver Canucks. 13 hockey seasons in the AHL were more than successful – Syracuse, Utica, and Abbotsford.
Jeremy Colliton has been appointed as the new head trainer of Abbotsford for 2022. Jeremy five years ago was the youngest trainer in the AHL along with Rockford IceHogs. The trainer has good statistics for his own performances.
