Maxwell new coach of women Hur­ri­canes

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The new Hol­land Col­lege Hur­ri­canes women’s hockey coach is the same as the old one.

Ryan Maxwell al­ready has a head coach­ing stint with women’s team un­der his belt in 2010, but has worked as an as­sis­tant with the men’s hockey team the last four sea­sons.

Maxwell takes over for out­go­ing bench boss Nick Miller, who’s re­turn­ing to New­found­land and Labrador for em­ploy­ment rea­sons.

Maxwell said he’s ready for the chal­lenge of de­vel­op­ing a col­le­giate hockey pro­gram.

“I look for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity to coach the women’s hockey team. I was very im­pressed with their chem­istry last sea­son,” said Maxwell in a re­lease. “I hope to build on that next sea­son and con­tinue to grow the pro­gram.”

The men Hur­ri­canes dropped out of the Is­land Ju­nior Hockey League for 2015-16 to fo­cus on recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties that will al­low for more par­tic­i­pa­tion among col­lege stu­dents.

So Maxwell be­came the top can­di­date for the va­cant head coach po­si­tion, said Al­bert Roche, Hol­land Col­lege di­rec­tor of ath­let­ics and recre­ation.
