The Condors of Kahnawake did not take long to re-structure their staff following the departure of Patrice Bosch. Frédéric Hébert looked like the most logical candidate to succeed the former chief trainer.
The new Condors trainer has been back with the Kahnawake organisation since May after having led the Braves of Valleyfield in Quebec’s Junior Hockey AAA League. He was appointed to his post last week by the management team of the Condors, just a few hours after the departure of Bosch.
It will be Hébert’s first season in his new training, having worked alongside Patrice Bosch in Kahnawake; he also worked in Vaudreuil-Dorion in the last 10 years.
“It was a logical choice because I already know the staff, the arena, and most of the team’s players”, Hébert explained.
Bosch announced his departure to the team on July 7 after he was promoted as assistant to Éric Veilleux of the Drakkar team of Baie-Comeau in the Quebec Major Hockey League.
Marc Raymond will therefore be assuming the post of general director since Bosch occupied the posts of both trainer and general director during the past years.
While the players are taking a month’s break, Hébert is already at work. With his appointment as chief trainer, he must now find a new assistant who can assist him on the bench in the company of Martin Deschamps, Scott Berish and Gilles Charron.
Then he must prepare for the pre-camp period which will be held at Sainte-Martine on the weekend of August 11 and 12. Already about 50 hockey players have registered and hope to land a place in the official camp beginning the 15th of August.
