Titan rounds out coaching staff


The Acadie-Bathurst Titan announced Monday two additions to their coaching staff for the 2015-16 season.

Bradley Flynn of New Glasgow, N.S., will serve as an assistant coach along-side head coach Mario Pouliot and assistant coach Jean-François Grégoire after serving as an assistant coach with the Corpus Christi IceRays of the North American Hockey League.

Prior to his coaching career beginning, Flynn, the son of newly hired Saint John Sea Dogs head coach Danny Flynn played two seasons with the Weeks Crushers of the Maritime Junior A Hockey League before moving into collegate hockey, playing one season with the Univeristy of Southern Maine followed by three years with Brock University. Flynn would play one year in the Southern Professional Hockey League with the Huntsville Havoc before retiring as a player.

Flynn now fills the void left behind the bench following the resignation of Kris MacDonald at the end of the 2014-15 season.

Also joining the Titan in the coming season is former Drummondville Voltigeur and Baie-Comeau Drakkar goaltender Nathan Dunnett of Whitney, N.B. who will serve as the team’s goaltending coach.

A ninth-round pick of the Saint John Sea Dogs in the 2007 QMJHL Entry Draft, Dunnett would go on to play parts of two seasons each with the Voltigeurs and the Drakkar before wrapping up his junior career with the Miramichi Timberwolves of the MHL in the 2010-11 season. Following the conclusion of his junior playing career, he would join the Timberwolves staff as a goaltending coach.
