SPKAC is very pleased to announce two new additions to our coaching staff for the 2017-18 Season.
Both coaches bring the attributes that match our club vision and values.
Congratulations Brent and Johnathan and welcome to the club!!!
BAA Sabres - Brent Riguidel
Brent comes to us with an extensive coaching resume that spans 25 years. Most of his time has been spent coaching in Manitoba before a family transfer for work brought them to Edmonton. During his time in Manitoba he has coached a fair amount of bantam hockey including BAAA for the St James Canadians. In Edmonton he coached the MAAA Edmonton Thunder in the female program. His focus is on constant improvement both on and off the ice.
15AA Senators - Johnathan Aitken
Johnathan grew up in Sherwood Park and played all of his minor hockey in our community. He was a first round draft pick of the Boston Bruins and spent 10 years playing pro hockey in the NHL, AHL, and Europe. Johnathan has spent time coaching his son in younger ages of minor hockey, he is interested in getting more engaged in the community and the SPKAC program. Over the past few years he has been involved in skill development with younger hockey players in and around Edmonton which will serve him well with our focus on development of skills as it relates to our players.
