Wallace to step into Head Coach role

The Walkerton Capitals Jr. ‘C’ Hockey Club is excited to announce that we have hired a Head Coach! The ‘Caps’ are proud to be giving the reigns to one of last year’s Assistant Coaches, Kevin Wallace!

Kevin, who grew up playing AAA for the London Jr. Knights, has made his way up through the ranks in both hockey and life. Wallace has played Junior hockey at both the Jr. ‘B’ and Jr. ‘C’ levels and has a great mindset when it comes to hockey. During his playing career, Kevin has spent time in Jr. ‘B’ with both the London Nationals and St Mary’s Lincolns, as well as he further spent time with the Thamesford Trojans Jr. ‘C’ Hockey program. Since his departure from playing, he has spent the last 10+ years coaching minor hockey in Quinte West, Shallow Lake, and Owen Sound.

In addition to his hockey resume, Kevin has been an active member of his community and country. He has been retired from the Canadian Armed Forces since 2019 where he spent the majority of his career as a Search and Rescue Technician. He is now employed at Bruce Power as a member of their Emergency Response Services – Fire, and is in active role as one of their lead trainers. Kevin’s background, both on and off the ice, is a huge asset to our hockey club moving forward. Kevin, now 39 years of age, resides in Sauble Beach, Ontario, is married to his wife, Michelle, and have 2 children, Nowl and Lyla.

Wallace will assume the role of Head Coach effectively immediately. Kevin supersedes Chad Haggitt as the next Head Coach of the ‘Caps’ – he was apart of last year’s PJHL’s Pollock Division ‘Coach Of The Year’ staff with our hockey club. Upon acceptance of the position, Kevin had this to say; “I’d like to say thank you to Chad [Haggitt] for the mentorship last season and I appreciate the Walkerton Capitals organization for giving me this opportunity – I feel fortunate to be given the opportunity to lead this evolving group and am looking forward to the challenge(s) of building off of last season’s success!”

Please join us in welcoming back, and congratulating Kevin as he takes on this new role with our ‘Caps’ organization.

Congratulations, Kevin!
