Muskies have new General Manager


The Shelburne Muskies Senior AA Hockey Club have a new General Manager.
Barry Trood has signed on as the new GM for the 2015 / 16 season.
Club president Kerry Wright announced his hiring at a recent club meeting.
“Barry brings a wealth of knowledge to the organization with his GM and coaching credentials. As coach for the Muskies he guided the Muskies to the league championship in 1997-98 and we believe with his wisdom and management skills we can build towards success again,” said Wright.
Mr. Trood has been through all aspects of the club as a former player, head coach and GM before stepping aside at the end of the 2004-05 season.
He also serves as general manager of the Shelburne Vets Jr “C” lacrosse team.
Mr. Trood also founded the Shelburne Vets lacrosse club in 1999 and was named into the Shelburne Sports Hall of Fame in 2014.
“I look forward to the challenge of getting the Muskies back to top of the league where they belong,” Trood said of taking on the new position. “The last few years have been challenging for the players and club executive alike however we will as a team work together to change that environment and move the club forward on and off the ice. I will be approaching a number of former Muskie supporters who combined with the present executive will lay the ground work to accomplish this goal. In terms of the team's personal everything is open and changes will certainly will take place however we do have a good base to work with. A new coaching staff should also be in place within the next month. The Senior hockey team has been around in Shelburne for over 100 years and its important that we engage our community to get behind the team once again. It won't happen over night but it will happen”
The Muskies had a tough 2014 / 15 season winning only four of 24 games played during the regular season.
