Mike Wilson Joins Storm Coaching Staff

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

“When you get to come into a team with a winning pedigree and a skillset like this team has, it’s a lot of fun for a coach. I’m ready to go”.

 The Campbell River Storm Junior Hockey Club is pleased to announce the hiring of
Mike Wilson as an Associate Coach.

As a fourteen year old bantam in the North Delta Minor Hockey Association, Wilson was described as an extremely intense competitor, one of the hardest working players with a strong desire to win.

Twelve years later, he brings that same desire to coaching, “I’ve always been a goal-oriented guy, always wanted to be at the highest level, always taking it to the next level and knowing where I want to be.” Given the talent he’s seen in the Storms’ play, Wilson feels confident that he can make a difference focussing on fine tuning and systems.  

Wilson recently graduated from Concordia, University of Edmonton, where he played for the Thunder in the ACAC.

In his final season of junior hockey in 2009-10, he was captain of the North Delta Devils of the PIJHL (now the PJHL) accumulating 52 points in 39 games. He played Junior ‘A for the Fort Frances Junior Sabres in the Superior International Junior Hockey League and with the Walpole Express of the Atlantic Junior Hockey League in the United States.

The new assistant joins a coaching staff that includes the General Manager/Head Coach Lee Stone, Assistant Coach Brendan Enns, and Goalie Coach Andy Seppanen.
