Terry Blizzard has been named the Saint John Sea Dogs strength and conditioning coach.
Blizzard is a personal trainer and owner of Afterburn Performance, a training centre that many Sea Dogs players have trained at over the past few years. A news release notes that Blizzard and the facility “played a key role in developing former Sea Dogs Jonathan Huberdeau, Charlie Coyle, Nathan Beaulieu, Tomas Jurco and Kevin Gagne.”
"Over the past four years we have seen Terry's role with the hockey club expand and grow, and we have greatly valued his contribution to the team," said Sea Dogs General Manager Darrell Young in the release. "We are extremely fortunate to have someone of his ability and talent in the Saint John area and our players have benefited greatly from his knowledge.
"We have dedicated student-athletes who deserve the best, and we need to show them that we are dedicated to their development."
