Batchewana Attack of the new Canadian International Hockey League has brought aboard former Ontario Hockey League defenceman Trevor Solomon as an assistant coach.
The 26-year old Solomon played in more than 250 games over four OHL seasons with the Sarnia Sting, Soo Greyhounds, Guelph Storm and London Knights. He was a first-round pick of Sarnia in 2003.
A Garden River First Nation product, Solomon also played hockey at the University of Windsor.
As an assistant coach for Batchewana, Solomon will work under Attack head coach Denny Lambert.
Lambert, who had an 11-year association with the OHL Greyhounds as a player, assistant coach and head coach, is also a veteran of more than 500 National Hockey League games.
Playing out of Rankin Arena in Sault Ste. Marie, the Attack will be one of eight teams in the new Ontario-based, junior-level, CIHL.
Batchewana will be part of a four-team North Division with the Espanola Rivermen, Sudbury Royals and St. Charles Spirit.
Colborne Cramahe Hawks, Collingwood Ice, Milton Battle Arts Cobras and Toronto Jr. Hockey Academy will make up the CIHL’s South Division.
