Geoff Walker joins Thunder as New Head Coach and General Manager

The Drayton Valley Thunder are pleased to announce the hiring of Geoff Walker as our new Head Coach and Hockey Operations General Manager, effective immediately.
As a player, Geoff recorded a 90 point season in the QMJHL and played in the AHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins farm club in Wilkes-Barre before finishing his career in Europe in 2018. Geoff has shown even more prowess as a Coach & GM, guiding his SIJHL teams to the past two Centennial Cup Championships. Last season, his Kam River Walleye finished in first place with a 40-11-1-1 regular season record and then went on to defeat Thunder Bay, capturing Kam Rivers’s first ever Bill Salonen Cup.
Geoff is a proven winner with recent success in building championship programs, instilling a culture that has helped many of his former players graduate to the NCAA, U-Sport, and professional ranks. Geoff is excited to join the Thunder family and to become part of the Drayton Valley community.
