from Charla Huber of the Victoria News,
Majority owner Len Barrie made his return as the head coach of the Victoria Grizzlies official on Friday.
The 42-year-old former NHL player, Tampa Bay Lightning owner and deposed Bear Mountain CEO has stepped into the top coaching slot of the junior A franchise.
Barrie assumed a coaching role during last season’s playoffs, when the squad struggled and lost against top-ranked Powell River Kings. Then-head coach Victor Gervais was made assistant after the Grizzlies were out of the playoffs in round 2.
“We have unfinished business and we want to win a championship,” Barrie said.
Barrie has demanding expectations for the team, which will see a number of new faces this season.
