(LAKESHORE, ON) – Lakeshore Canadiens general manager Mark Seguin announced last week that head coach Robb Serviss has stepped down due to work and family commitments. Taking Serviss’ place behind the bench will be Justin Solcz.
Solcz previously spent seven seasons coaching the University of Windsor men’s hockey team, helping to build the Lancers program into a consistent top ten team in the nation.
“I am excited to work with Justin towards our ultimate goal of winning a championship,” Seguin said. “His passion and vision for the game is contagious and will only help our players in the future.”
Joining Solcz behind the bench is Sean Voy, a four-year Jr C Canadiens goaltender and Great Lakes champion. Voy has 10 years of coaching experience in the AAA system.
Incumbent assistant coaches Mike Ditty, who captured the Great Lakes title in 2011 with the Canadiens and who served as captain for the 2013-14 season that saw the team go to the GLJCHL Final, and Rene Loignon, complete the coaching staff.
“It’s exciting to have Sean join the staff,” Seguin said. “Having two former Canadiens and Great Lakes Champions behind the bench will be a great asset to our organization.”
The Canadiens thank Robb Serviss for his effort and wish him the best in the future.
Solcz’s first game behind the bench was a 3-1 loss to the Essex 73’s on Friday. The team rebounded for a 6-3 drubbing of the Dresden Jr Kings the following night.
