WEST KELOWNA B.C. – The West Kelowna Warriors Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is thrilled to name Josh Gorges Director of Player Development. Gorges spent 13 years on the back end with the San Jose Sharks, Montreal Canadians and Buffalo Sabres.
“We are excited to have Josh on board”, said Head Coach Simon Ferguson. “He brings 13 years of NHL experience as well as various coaching and development knowledge. He will be working with our players, both on and off the ice, and they will all benefit a lot from the opportunity to learn from a professional of his caliber.”
“I’m just really excited to be back working in the game of hockey and help bring that Championship mentality back to the Warriors organization,” said Gorges. “I hope to make an impact here using my experience I have gained playing this game and help develop these young players into professionals and help them develop their skills but probably more importantly the mental side of the game and hockey IQ”.
Gorges and the rest of the Warriors coaching staff are preparing for training camp starting soon. Stay tuned for more Warriors announcements over the next couple weeks on their website or various social media outlets.
