The Merritt Centennials continue to round out their hockey operations staff ahead of the 2021-22 season by adding Head Trainer Dave Rowe to the team.
Rowe has served as the Head Trainer with a number of Junior A programs across the country including the Melville Millionaires, the Grand Prarie Storm, the Prince George Spruce Kings, and the Cobourg Cougars.
Director of Hockey Operations John Stuart says that Rowe’s familiarity with the game as a player and as a trainer make him a natural fit.
“We are excited to add Dave to our staff, his experience in Junior A hockey is something we were looking for. Being an athlete himself he understands the needs of the players and what they may be going through and can relate through experience.”
Rowe will assume active duties on August 1st with the club.
