New Coaching Staff For HJHL's Mountain View Colts

The coaching staff from the Olds Midget AA Grizzlys will be moving from the Olds SportsComplex down Highway 2A to the Didsbury Memorial Complex next season. Rob Turville is the new Head Coach of the Heritage Junior Hockey League's Mountainview Colts.

The new coaching staff for the Mountainview Colts will be bringing nearly 600 games worth of junior hockey experience with it to the town of Didsbury.
Rob Turville is the new Head Coach for the Colts. The now 34 year old Turville played a combined total of 117 games during his AJHL & BCHL career.
His trio of assistant coaches include Jeff Smyth who suited up for 174 regular season games with the Olds Grizzlys. Billy Way logged 131 games with the Grizzlys and the Mountainview Colts during his playing days. And Rob's brother - Pat Turville - was in the Colts line-up for 144 HJHL contests. Pat added 11 more with Olds and Drumheller in the Alberta Junior Hockey League.
Rob explains how the opportunity came about to move up to the Heritage Junior Hockey League after spending the past couple seasons as coaches with Olds Minor Hockey.
Turville expects Didsbury's HJHL team to maintain what has been a very productive relationship over the past several seasons with the Olds Midget AA program.
Turville, his brother Pat, and Billy Way began coaching the Olds Midget AA Grizzlys in the fall of 2015. Smyth joined their coaching staff this past season.
