The Cents have bolstered their ranks again, this time behind the bench.
Head Coach and General Manager Joe Martin says he’s glad to welcome Brandon Shaw to the coaching staff from Barrie, Ontario.
Shaw joins the Centennials after spending the last two seasons as an assistant coach with the Cambridge Winterhawks of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League. During that time he’s also operated as a scout for the Cents and has helped them acquire players from the Ontario area.
Martin says Shaw will help spread out the coaching duties evenly
"He's going to be taking over the defensive part of the bench, and we'll move Matt to his more natural position up on forward, and then it gives me a chance to oversee the whole bench."
The extra eyes and voice on the bench should help the Centennials during main camp which opens on August 21st.
