Lake Superior State has announced the appointment of Jamie Henderson as the director of hockey operations, beginning with the 2016-17 season.
Henderson, a native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., most recently served as the general manager of the Soo Thunderbirds of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League during 2015-16 after a season as the club’s assistant general manager during their 2015 Dudley Hewitt Cup-winning season. In four seasons with the Thunderbirds, Henderson helped claim three NOJHL championships and two RBC Cup appearances as the Dudley Hewitt Cup Champions.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to join the staff of the Lakers,” said Henderson in a news release. “I’m looking forward to getting started and for the opportunity to work with an NCAA Division I program with such a storied history.”
“We’re excited to welcome Jamie to Laker hockey,” added LSSU head coach Damon Whitten. “His experience, both as a coach and as a general manager, will add tremendous value to the director of hockey operations position.”
Henderson’s daily functions with the team will include travel preparation, film breakdown and analysis.
