Axemen hockey promote Roberts to Video Coach

The Acadia Axemen have promoted Taylor Roberts to Video Coach after supporting the team over the past season in a hockey operations role.

Axemen head coach Darren Burns said this about Roberts promotion, “We are very excited to add to Taylor’s responsibilities with our program. He did a terrific job as a student, in the role of hockey operations. We need to continue to build a staff to meet the needs of players, who are choosing our program to develop as hockey players. He has done an excellent job for us and just spent the last five weeks working with the Memorial Cup Champion Saint John Sea Dogs. He was a very valuable addition to their team, and he was surrounded by some extremely high-level hockey executives, consultants, and coaches. Being immersed in the preparations for this tournament will only benefit him and what he can bring to the Axemen hockey program moving forward. To compete at the highest level, we need to continually work to build strengths in our program. We know Taylor can use his experiences and passion for the game to help us get better.”

Roberts will be providing an in-depth and broken down video analysis of the games to maximize the team’s play and the players’ success, while also overseeing all hockey operations from scheduling, finances and logistics for the team.

Congratulations to Taylor on the new role.
