SAINT JOHN – The Saint John Sea Dogs announced that Danny Flynn is leaving his position as head coach to pursue other opportunities.
Flynn spent two seasons behind the Saint John bench. The Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, native guided the Sea Dogs to the 2017 QMJHL President Cup and an appearance in the semifinals of the 2017 MasterCard Memorial Cup.
“I feel the time is right for me to move on,” Flynn said. “It was great to be part of two outstanding seasons. I really enjoyed my time with the team. Saint John is a great hockey city and a great community. I want to thank the Sea Dogs for giving me and my family the opportunity to be a part of it.”
“We were looking forward to Danny returning for a third season but support him in this decision,” said Sea Dogs President and General Manager Trevor Georgie. “We thank him and wish him the very best in the next stage of his career.”
Georgie said the team has begun the search for a new coach to lead and develop a young and exciting roster.
