Eric Bissonnette Presented with Canadian Tire Hero of Play Award
If you’ve been a high performance player in New Brunswick in the last decade, then you know the name Eric Bissonnette, and what he means to hockey in the province.
For more than 10 years, Bissonnette has stood behind the bench of provincial and regional teams, including his current position as head coach of New Brunswick’s under-16 Canada Winter Games team, and a turn as head coach of Team Atlantic at the 2012 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
He is an instructor for Hockey Canada’s National Coach Certification Program, and has worked as a guest coach at Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team selection camp, and Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team strength and conditioning camp.
But Bissonnette’s biggest impact has come locally and provincially; a presenter at Hockey New Brunswick high performance camps and high performance coaching seminars, he is also a master skills, skating and checking instructor, and delivers skills sessions and checking clinics for young players in the Fredericton area.
