HNB National Volunteer Week: Mike Burrell

National Volunteer Week: Mike Burrell Hockey New Brunswick would like to highlight volunteer Mike Burrell (North Hampton, NB) for his contributions to Hockey New Brunswick’s High-Performance Program. Mike has served many roles with many different teams over the years with a lot of his experience in hockey coming with the MHL’s Woodstock Slammers as their Equipment Manager, the HNB High Performance Program for many years and has also worked with the High School and Junior C teams in his community. Mike has also served as a role model for up-and-coming equipment managers in the QMJHL, AUS and Hockey New Brunswick High Performance Program. “Anyone who knows Mike knows that ensuring that his players have all of their equipment needs looked after is just one small part of his contribution to our youth. Mike is a very proud man and his pride is contagious amongst our players. Our dressing room is always impeccable, and this attitude of respect is emulated by our players. Mike is always there to guide his players and help instill the rights ethics and values that will serve them well; long after their active playing career”, said Eric Bissonnette, former High-Performance Program Coach and colleague. Bissonnette also said “For one, I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Mike on many occasions including the Canada Games in 2015. The unselfishness and “team first” attitude the he displayed is commendable. The number of hours and attention to details that Mike puts in, in order to make a difference for the staff and players is remarkable. Anyone who was lucky enough to be on his team is blessed and better for it.” For all of your contributions to the game of hockey, going above and beyond, Hockey New Brunswick celebrates Mike Burrell during National Volunteer Week.
