Scott Wray will be leaving his position as head coach of the reigning Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League champion Powassan Voodoos to join the North Bay Battalion of the Ontario Hockey League as an assistant coach, multiple sources have told HockeyNewsNorth.com.
Wray will take over from John Dean on the staff of the OHL Battalion.
With Wray moving up from the NOJHL Voodoos to the OHL Battalion, Powassan will have a select group of top candidates to choose from as its new bench boss.
Among the names being mentioned as Wray’s successor in Powassan is that of North Bay native Beau Moyer, who has had extreme success as head coach of the minor midget Vaughan Kings of the Greater Toronto Hockey League. Moyer also has several seasons of scouting experience with the OHL’s Kingston Frontenacs.
