This was announced by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (LHJMQ) club on Friday.

Crickard has been an assistant with the Sea Dogs since November 2021. He was therefore part of the group of coaches who guided the team to victory at the Memorial Cup last June.

Remember that after a disappointing loss during the QMJHL playoffs, the Maritimes organization fired head coach Gordie Dwyer before the prestigious tournament took place. It was Gardiner MacDougall, on loan from the University of New Brunswick, who coached the Sea Dogs during the Memorial Cup.

“I’m very grateful for the opportunity General Manager Trevor Georgie and Owner Scott McCain have given me,” Crickard said in a team statement. After winning the Memorial Cup, I want to continue working with this team and honor the Sea Dogs’ success by educating the next generation of athletes on the ice and young men off the ice.
