Bulldogs hire former Cyclones assistant coach to lead the team

The Fairmont Security Kincardine Bulldogs have a new head coach.
The organization announced last week that Todd Norman has agreed to the position of head coach for the 2019-2020 season. Norman comes to the Bulldogs with plenty of experience after having served as assistant coach for the Listowel Junior B Cyclones in the past, where the team compiled a 116-29-1-4 record during the regular season with Norman as part of the coaching staff.
The Cyclones were the Cherrey Cup champions in 2016-2017, capped off the 2017-2018 season with a repeat as Cherrey Cup champions, and were crowned Sutherland Cup Champions for 2017-2018. The Cherrey Cup is presented to the winner of the midwestern division of the GOJHL and the Sutherland Cup is awarded for the overall champion of the GOJHL.
“We are tremendously excited to have Todd as our head coach for the up-and-coming season,” Bulldogs General Manager Warren Beisel said in a statement. “Todd is a proven winner and we know he will bring his winning ways to the Bulldogs. Winning follows him wherever he goes and his ideas of what makes a successful organization is directly in line with what we want to accomplish here with the Bulldogs. I have no doubt that he will be a key component to our success, and I look forward to a great season.”
Norman grew up in the Gowanstown area where he played minor hockey for Wallace Township, before playing for the Brussels Bulls Junior C team, Stratford Cullitons Junior B team and for the Guelph Storm OHL team (1993-1997). He was a member of the gold medal-winning Team Canada at the 1995 World Under-18 tournament and was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the fifth round in 1995. Norman completed his playing career having played professionally for four years in the ECHL, WPHL, AHL and European leagues.
