The Sioux Lookout Bombers are excited to announce the hiring of our Head Coach Carson Johnstone!
Carson comes to us from Niagara Falls Ontario where he grew up playing Minor hockey, and watching his father coach Junior. His own playing experiences include prep hockey, junior hockey, college hockey, and minor professional in Europe. During his travels, Carson had the opportunity to coach with multiple minor hockey organizations, and even junior programs while in Europe. After starting his own Hockey Development Company after retirement, Carson followed in his fathers footsteps and started coaching in the Niagara Region with the Fort Erie Meteors and Pelham Panthers of the GOJHL. Shortly after, Carson spearheaded the construction of a hockey program at Fort Erie International Academy where he has been the U18 Head Coach for two years.
“I have always wanted to be a coach.” says Johnstone, “I love the game more passionately than anybody out there. As a player, captain, and coach I always wanted/want to win, I know how to make my team come together and create a dressing room community/culture that allows us to play our best hockey. I carry those skills I learned in leadership roles throughout my playing career into the dressing room as a coach. I believe sincerely that will over skill, commitment to defense, and the Team, wins Championships.”
Johnstone concludes, “I can’t wait to get started and win, here in Sioux Lookout.”
