Eskimos appoint new AGM

IROQUOIS FALLS – the Abitibi Eskimos are pleased to announce that Dan Dube has accepted the newly created position of Assistant General Manager with the region’s Junior A hockey club.

The affable Dube has just completed his first full season as an assistant bench boss for the Eskis, a role he will continue to fill in addition to his new AGM duties.

Head Coach and General Manager Paul Gagne was elated with the decision.

“Dan was a real pleasure to have around as a player, but now being an adult, he’s a professional, knows the game really well and has respect from all of us.

This new position will be a great experience for him. He will be introduced to the business side of the game.”

The new AGM had this to say on his recent appointment:

“I consider myself very fortunate to be the Assistant General Manager of the Abitibi Eskimos. I’m really looking forward to working with people who are well respected in the league. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to learn the managing side of a junior A hockey club. I am anxious to take part in the recruitment process and give the fans the winning tradition that they deserve.”

Dube, born and raised in Iroquois Falls, is a former Eskimos team captain and was the 2006-07 MVP of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. He amassed an impressive 111 points in 117 games played with the black-and-gold from 2002 to 2007.
