From NHL Player, To Owner, To Junior A Coach

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.
