Thunder welcome Corey Bricknell as new Associate Coach and Assistant GM

The Drayton Valley Thunder are pleased to announce the addition of Corey Bricknell to our Hockey Family. 
Corey will assist Sean Brown with both coaching and general management duties.  Corey brings a wealth of hockey knowledge and experience to the Thunder.  Corey played four seasons in the OHL with Niagra and Newmarket,  and also four more in pro hockey.  He then embarked on what has been a remarkably successful 18 year coaching career.  Corey has coached Junior A, in the OHL, at the professional ranks, and even in the Erste Liga in Hungary.  Most recently, he served as head coach to the French River Rapids of the Northern Ontario Jr. A League before moving to Alberta to become the head coach and general manager of the Junior A Cold Lake Aeros.  Corey led that team to a CAJHL title last season, losing only a handful of games throughout the entire regular season.  Corey has a proven track record of promoting players to the next level.  He is an outstanding communicator with a passion for the game that we know our players and fans will come to appreciate. Corey is excited to meet the challenge of helping bring an AJHL title to Drayton Valley and looks forward to becoming part of the Drayton Valley community.Dr
