Brett MacLean turns his focus onto training young players
Brett MacLean will always be a hometown boy. He began his hockey career in Saugeen Shores and is now returning to work with local players as they prepare to hit the ice this fall.
After leaving Saugeen Shores minor hockey, Brett played for the Grey Bruce Highlanders AAA squad before being drafted in the first round by the Erie Otters of the OHL in 2004. Three years later, in 2007, he was drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes. Brett played for both the Coyotes and the Winnipeg Jets before suffering a career ending cardiac emergency in 2012.
Even though he can no longer play professional hockey, he still stays involved in the game he loves.
Brett has partnered with the Lakeshore Racquet Club in offering Dryland hockey training from August 12-23. Players between the ages of 12-17 will work on speed, agility and quickness through circuit training and yoga. Interested players can contact the Racquet Club for more information.
After dryland hockey is over, Brett plans to attend the University of Waterloo, both as a student and as an assistant coach for the Waterloo Warriors men's hockey team.
