New Canon-McMillan Varsity Hockey Coach Has Experience in NHL

The new coach formerly played for the New York Rangers and the Boston Bruins.

Canon-McMillan Hockey Association announced this week that a new varsity head coach has been hired for the 2013-14 school year.

CMHA officials said Terry Virtue brings Canadian Major Junior coaching experience to the program.

He coached for two seasons—from 2010 to 2012—for the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League. Virtue also coached three seasons—from 200g to 2010—with the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League before coming to the Big Macs.

In addition to his coaching experience, Virtue played 17 years of professional hockey, including 14 years in the American Hockey League.

He has National Hockey League experience with the New York Rangers and Boston Bruins.  

During his AHL career, Virtue won two Calder Cups and was voted Best Defenseman five times.

In addition to his duties as the varsity head coach, Virtue "will be working with all teams in the association and their coaches to bring a shared vision to the overall program," officials said.
