GREY BRUCE HIGHLANDERS PLAYER DEVELOPMENT INSTRUCTOR ANNOUNCEMENT

The Highlanders would like to welcome Connor Patton, a native of Owen Sound, to our Team of qualified Player Development Instructors. Connor will be teaching Power Skating to our Pee Wee, Minor Bantam and Bantam teams for the 2019/20 season.


Connor has been teaching power skating and skills for 10 years along side other
Highlander instructors Denise Reid and Brad Tiley. He grew up being a power skating
student of Denise Reid and Brigitte Wolf and was fortunate to attend multiple skill
development camps within the GTA through the Pro Hockey Development Program.

Connor is a product of the Grey-Bruce Highlanders and knows first hand the
Highlanders focus on Player Development and is eager to aid in this process. After 4
years with the Highlanders, Connor attended the Hill Academy in Toronto where he was
provided the opportunity to be on the ice everyday and travel the Eastern U.S. playing
against high level talent. His junior hockey career started with the Walkerton Hawks
where he was named Rookie of the Year and won a League Championship. The
following year he graduated to Junior B with the Caledonia Covairs and won back to
back League Championships. He returned to Walkerton to finish his Junior career
being named Team Captain. Connor continues to play competitive hockey with
Saugeen Shores Winterhawks of the Ontario Senior A League.

It is Connors experience and belief that skating skills separates great hockey players
from good hockey players. He takes pride in the development of quality skaters and
skilled individuals and is looking forward to joining our Player Development Program.
