Cents Name Luke Pierce Assistant Coach:
(Luke Pierce as a player for the Royal Military College Paladins)
Luke Pierce has joined the Centennials as an assistant to head coach and GM Joey Bouchard.
Pierce is a 25-year-old who grew up in Merritt, playing in the Merritt Minor Hockey Association before join the KIJHL's Revelstoke Grizzlies for the 2000-01 season. He played in the BCHL for the Cents from 2001-03 and was traded from Merritt to Vernon prior to the 2003-04 season. Pierce wrapped up his playing career last season after five years at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario. He graduated with a Master of Business Administration.
I hope to have Joey Bouchard's thoughts on Luke's addition to the coaching staff posted sometime tomorrow.
