A restructuring of the Hockey Operation Pyramid would have Billy Burke promoted to the role of “Director of Hockey Operations”. Jody Hull act as the interim coach, while Joey and Billy take the next few months to explore all their options (e.g,. Dan Girardi, Jay McKee, Ted Nolan, etc…).

Complete an extensive search of every possible available coach. Bringing in a top flight coach should not be difficult for Joey and Billy. This is a desirable OHL franchise located in a beautiful region. The IceDogs have a tremendous fan base, an outstanding facility (Meridian Centre) and a team with a talented core of young players (02s and 03s), a #2 overall pick (OHL Draft), 2 x 2nd and a 3rd, #4 overall in the Import Draft, plus a boat load of picks that can be used to acquire high end talent to challenge for multiple championships in a couple of years.

With a new coach, this team has bright future.

Thank you

I?m getting tired of saying this

I expected to lose most games after the trade deadline

But to get blown out by below .500 teams is inexcusable

Good thing Lodnia stayed behind to ?lead the team?

LMFAO

I couldn?t even type that with a straight face.

Wonder if he is even still in Niagara or is he with his AHL team ?rehabbing? lmfao

Maybe someone with this kind of pedigree; not someone who has not coached before. Ottawa were not particularly good until they made this hire.....

André Tourigny
Head Coach/Vice President of Hockey Operations
crop_21198031017

Accompanied by an impressive Junior Hockey coaching pedigree, André Tourigny joined the Ottawa 67’s as Head Coach and Vice President of Hockey Operations prior to the franchise’s 50th anniversary 2017/2018 season. The Nicolet, Quebec native, who had spent the entirety of his Major Junior coaching career in the QMJHL, joined the Barber Poles boasting a remarkable junior hockey résumé that began in 1998 as Assistant Coach for the Shawinigan Cataractes.

Following a pair of seasons in Shawinigan, Tourigny joined the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in 2002, where he spent more than a decade as both Head Coach and General Manager. In his 11 years with Rouyn-Noranda, Tourigny qualified for the playoffs in all but 1 season, amassing a record of 337-336-20 over 693 regular season games and setting a QMJHL record for most games coached with one franchise. In 2005/2006, Tourigny was the recipient of the QMJHL Ron Lapointe Coach of the Year Award, and in 2007/2008 he coached the Huskies to a league-best 47-20-2-1 record. Tourigny’s coaching pedigree extends to the international level as well, where on 2 different occasions he helped represent Canada as an Assistant Coach for the 2010 and 2011 World Junior Hockey Championships, winning silver on both occasions.

Not lost among his junior hockey accolades, Tourigny’s wealth of coaching experience brought him to the National Hockey League as well, where he spent the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 seasons as the Defensive Coach for the Colorado Avalanche. Following his tenure in Colorado, Tourigny then found himself north of the border once again, this time as Assistant Coach for the Ottawa Senators under then Head Coach Dave Cameron. Most recently, Tourigny spent the 2016-2017 season as Head Coach of the QMJHL Halifax Mooseheads.

Tourigny joins the Ottawa 67’s as the 9th Head Coach in franchise history.

If it’s not the coaching, it must be the scouting.

Doubt a coaching change will help the team has quit.

Coaching change definitely wouldn’t help much if at all but as long as the HC has the last name Burke people on here will say it’ll change everything
