Lafleur won’t be returning as the Lumberjacks Head Coach

HEARST, Ont. – The Hearst Lumberjacks would like to inform our fans that Marc Lafleur won’t be returning as the Lumberjacks Head Coach and GM for the 2020-21 season. Due to Covid-19, it became clearer that Marc wouldn’t come back in 2020-21. He will return in the Ottawa Region to be with his family.

Marc joined the Lumberjacks organization in 2017-18 and has set high standards of achievement from day one. He led the team in 2018-19 on being Copeland Cup Champions and Dudley-Hewitt Finalist, one game away from participating in the National Championship Event, He set a team culture that we intend to maintain as we move on.

Marc was a true leader and we thank him for paving the way for the Hearst Lumberjacks to be a place of choice in Junior Hockey in Canada. We will miss him and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. ONCE A LUMBERJACK, ALWAYS A LUMBERJACK!
