Giguere enjoying first season with Kings

When the Dauphin Kings started up training camp this season, a new Assistant Coach was in place for the team, and it's Mitch Giguere, and so far so good for the Quebec-Native.

"For myself it's been good so far," said Giguere. "With the players, Marc and everyone. This was definitely a great decision to come here this season."

Giguere has spent the majority of his coaching career in Quebec with several different teams including the U16 and U17 provincial teams.

"Moving from Quebec wasn't a decision my family and I made overnight," said Giguere. "It's been two or three years that we've been talking about it, and every summer we would look at things, and get prepared for when we would move. It wasn't that hard, but everytime you move to a different province, you have to change a lot of things. It wasn't that complicated, but overall our family is really enjoying it so far."

The Kings organization is known to have extreme success, and after a slow start this season, they are getting back on track with three wins in their last four games.

"That's the main reason why I'm here right now," said Giguere. "I received offers to be a Head Coach or Assistant Coach with other teams in the summer, but this was the right fit. The facility here is top notch. All the players have respect for everything, it's really great.

Mitch will join Marc Berry and the rest of the Kings this weekend when they have a two-game set in Portage and Selkirk.

The next time you can see Mitch at Credit Union Place is next Tuesday, October 17 when the Kings welcome the Swan Valley Stampeders.
