Appreciate the very positive responses on here. Thank you. You’re all going to love Jarrod “Juice” Skalde. Such a personable guy. Every one of his former employers and players just loved him and would want him back. Very hard worker and experienced enough where he knows what buttons to push - and what not to. Should be a very good recruiter given his breadth of experience and how well liked he is in the hockey community.
exciting times to have a fresh face and something to look forward to. Just a small thing to look after first before we start playing...
Looking through Skalde’s CV there are plenty of Devils links.
Looks like he played with Ziga Svete during his time in Slovenia.
Played with Linglet, Mike Garrow and Regan Darby in Utah.
Played with Frank Evans at Las Vegas Thunder.
Played with John Parco at Belleville Bulls
Coached A.Hotham and Carl Hudson in Cincinnati.
Coached Ryan Finnerty and Justin Sawyer in Bloomington
It really sounds like this has been a very considered and well thought out appointment by the Devils. I have to confess, I wasn't familiar with him until earlier today, but he seems to have plenty of attributes that make him well suited for the role. I'm really looking forward to see him putting his stamp on the team.
Now we just need hockey to return so we can properly begin this new chapter.
Interesting signing considering the calibre of those who’d applied. Can’t wait for an outside professional coach, add into the mix owners who want to recruit the best, money not an issue, guaranteed winning. Fingers crossed when the season does start every club has survived..........
