Coach Candace joins the team as head coach for the 2021-22 season. A former USport player of 5 years and assistant captain with the University of Windsor, Candace understands the nature of being a student-athlete, and the pressures that accompany athletes when juggling both academics and elite athletics.
Upon graduation, coach Candace joined the Pittsburgh Penguins during the 2015-16 season in their Youth and Amateur Hockey Development. During her time in Pittsburgh she traded in her skates for a whistle when she took up coaching within the Pens Elite/Pens Selects organizations. Candace also assisted in running elite group skills sessions with both high performance players and goalies.
"My time in Pittsburgh provided me with immense opportunity to understand grassroots hockey at its core. The importance of development and repetition for players of all ages and skill levels was a huge focus, and it's something that I have prioritized in my coaching ever since."
Coach Candace is looking forward to coaching a group of players that are committed, eager and enthusiastic to improve and achieve both their personal and team goals.
