The Guelph Storm announced on Monday that former NHLer Todd Harvey has joined the team’s coaching staff for the 2013-2014 season.
The club also announced that assistant coach Chris Hajt has been appointed to work alongside general manager Mike Kelly as the Storm’s assistant general manager.
Harvey, a 12-year pro, participated in several on-ice sessions with the Storm last season. After his playing career, he has been involved with The Hockey Loft training facility, working on skill development with players of all ages, said a Storm news release.
With his new position, Hajt fills an organizational need that was evident at the management level, said the release.
He will work with Kelly in all areas of hockey operations, including scouting (with particular emphasis on U.S.-based teams and players), prospect development, OHL and import drafts as well as team administration, public relations and business relations.
