Darryl Martin on his new Head Coach …
Terry had the perfect mix of playing and coaching experience. The fact that he has played at such a high level will command respect from the boys from day one. He’s a local Transcona guy, and we want to be able to build this program from the grassroots level, it starts right now with Terry. He is in touch with the guys at this age level and we are expecting big things moving forward.
