Toneff Returns...

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

The Campbell River Storm Hockey club is proud to announce that Curtis Toneff has decided to step away from his opportunity at Selkirk College and join the Storm staff as an Associate Coach.  

Toneff will join the bench staff specializing in player development, particularly with our defensive core. Toneff played four years of Junior Hockey across Canada amassing over 200 games at the Junior A level and finishing with the Campbell River Storm this past season. Last year, Toneff tallied 6 goals and 13 assists for 19 points in 27 games including playoffs.  Toneff brings a vast knowledge of the game having played it at a very high level of Hockey and will be vital in working with the team’s young defensemen.

“I’m very excited to stay involved in the game in a coaching role with the Storm and to work with some familiar faces as well as the incoming recruits,” the new coach of the Storm commented. “I have no doubt we will be the hardest working team on and off the ice and I will do my best to help players move onto the next level. I’d like to thank Lee Stone, Linda and Kevin Spooner and the entire Storm organization for the opportunity,” he continued.

“When Curtis first came to Campbell River he made it very clear his goal was to become a Coach one day and I am glad to see him moving into the next phase of his Hockey career with our organization,” said Campbell River Storm Head Coach and General Manager Lee Stone. “The development Curtis will help provide for our younger players will be a great asset to our program. There is no question his playing resume speaks for itself and we are certain he will continue to add to the excellence of our program.”

The Storm will open their Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season on August 1st with their Identification camp in town where they are still accepting registrations. Please visit www.campbellriverstorm.com for more information.
