Gens coach grades his hockey team

Team has seen some significant progress over the past 12 months

It’s that time of year again where Oceanside Generals head coach and GM Dave Johnston grades his Junior B hockey team.

With 12 games remaining in their 42-game regular season, the longtime Generals’ bench boss had this to say.

OFFENCE: “I would probably rate us at a B-plus. We’re getting very good offensive numbers from our top line. Three guys on our top line are all in the top 17 in the league in scoring. Kyle Yamasaki leads the way at ninth with 33 points.”

DEFENCE: “Defence, up to this point, I would give us a B based on the growth of the group because were a very young group on the back end.”

GOALTENDING: “An F until we got Gudmandson, and you have to give Goody an A.”

SPECIAL TEAMS: “Again, based on improvement, if you look at where we are when I took over and where we are now I would give both of them a solid B with significant room to grow.”

COACHING STAFF: “For us we’ve got a group that’s willing able and capable of learning and it makes our job significantly easier based on the response that we’ve got since the change. I would give us a B because again we still have lots of room to grow.”
