The Soo Thunderbirds are getting set to kick off their 2018-2019 season tomorrow night at 7pm at the John Rhodes Community Centre, and tonight I had the chance to chat with head coach John Parco about this year’s team.
Parco, who is entering his second season behind the bench with the Thunderbirds, was named the NOJHL’s Coach of the Year last year.
Some of the key returnees on this year’s team, include forwards Nick Smith and Kaidan McDonald along with defencemen Steven Bellini and Tristan Cicchello.
McDonald has also been named Thunderbirds captain for the 2018-2019 season.
The 2018-2019 season will mark the 20th anniversary for the Soo Thunderbirds!
