Vancouver, BC—Vancouver Giants General Manager Scott Bonner today announced that the Western Hockey League club has hired Mike Dyck as a WHL scout. Dyck, a former assistant coach with the Giants, will coach Team Pacific at the Under 17 World Challenge in Timmins, Ontario, later this month.
Giants GM Scott Bonner says “It’s good to welcome Mike back to the Giants family, he was a part of our building process early on, and will now help me with trades, and work to help get us to where we want to be.”
Dyck coached the Lethbridge Hurricanes for 5 seasons and 268 games, and says “I am happy to be back with a first class organization, and to be working with a good group of people that I am very familiar with.”
Dyck will coach Nathan Burns, Zach Hodder and Giants prospect Aaron Hadley at the U17. He begins his duties with the Giants immediately.
