First-year operator Jessy Landry is stepping down as president of the French River Rapids of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League.
Landry, who purchased the Rapids from founding owner Allan Donnan during the last off-season, informed NOJHL officials and members of the French River organization of his decision via e-mail on Thursday.
While Landry has resigned as president of the two-year old franchise, he indicated that the Rapids — who will finish last overall in the 12-team NOJHL for the second straight season — will continue to operate, albeit with new management.
Below is the e-mail that Landry distributed on Thursday, a copy of which was forwarded to HockeyNewsNorth.com.

Hockey in French River is more alive than ever.
