New coach makes debut

Nanaimo Clippers’ assistant coach Michael Olson made his debut on the Generals’ bench helping out Saturday.

“Obviously they have a vested interest in some of our players for now and for the future, so it just made sense that Michael can get the opportunity to assist us and to get to know the players,” said Gens’ bench boss Dave Johnston.

Olson remains on the bench with the Clippers “and will help us out whenever he can. It’s a very part time scenario, but it’s a huge addition to our coaching staff.”

Johnston was at the VIJHL 2012 All-Star Classic in Saanich Sunday. Oceanside’s Taylor Grabowski, one of six Generals’ selected to lace up in the Prospects Game, scored twice and earned Player of the Game honours as the North beat the South 6-4. In the All-Star Game, featuring six Gens, the South won in a shootout.
