Timmins Rock of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League will get assistance from three new assistants for the 2015-2016 season.
HockeyNewsNorth.com has confirmed that James Daschuk, Eric Paquette and Marc Bisson will join the Rock coaching staff as assistants to veteran coach-general manager Paul Gagne.
The troika of assistants have a prior association with the AAA bantam Timmins Eagles, thus are no strangers to hockey in the northeastern Ontario area.
Gagne said and he and his newly-hired assistants are on the same page in many ways.
“They share the same philosophy as I do. It’s all about the kids. They put everything they have into coaching,” Gagne told the Timmins Daily Press.
