The Cobourg Cougars junior A hockey club has made more changes to its hockey operations staff.
On Monday, the Cougars announced that Todd Reid is replacing Alex Guiney as the club’s general manager. Reid, who was Cobourg’s director of hockey operations, previously served as general manager of the Wellington Dukes before joining the Cougars last season.
“I’m excited for this opportunity to take on an expanded role with the Cougars, one of the most storied franchises in junior hockey,” Reid stated in a release. “I appreciate ownership’s trust in me and look forward to bringing a championship back to the great town of Cobourg.”
No reason was provided for Guiney’s departure. It was announced he was stepping down from his GM role.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to be a part of the Cobourg Cougars organization and to work with some tremendous people over the last year and a half,” Guiney stated. “I’m proud of the work we’ve done here in Cobourg during the pandemic and have the utmost faith in Todd Reid, Wes Wolfe and the staff with the Cougars as they prepare for the 2021-2022 season.”
The Cougars have also hired Steve Irving as the club’s director of business operations to oversee day-to-day operations and sales in his role. Josh Lemire joins the Cougars as director of analytics and hockey operations assistant to assist the coaching staff in providing data-driven insights and video analysis on players this season.
