Oshawa - March 23, 2015 - Hockey Canada , in collaboration with the Canadian Hockey League and Hockey Canada Program of Excellence management group today announced that Oshawa Generals Head Coach, DJ Smith has been selected as an Assistant Coach of Canada’s National Junior Team. The Oshawa Generals would like to congratulate DJ on this accomplishment and wish him and Team Canada all the best in their quest for gold.

Coaching staff were selected by Canada’s National Junior Team policy committee and the Program of Excellence management group, alongside Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of hockey operations and national teams, and Tom Renney, Hockey Canada’s president and chief executive officer.

DJ joined the Oshawa Generals in June 2012 after spending six seasons as the Assistant Coach of the Windsor Spitfires, two of which were CHL Championship years. DJ’s hockey resume includes three seasons with the Spitfires playing defense before moving up to both the American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL). DJ led the Oshawa Generals to a Leyden Division Trophy in the 2013-14 season and has coached a record-breaking 2014-15 season with the Generals, already securing another Leyden Division Trophy and heading into the playoffs leading the Eastern Conference with 108 points. Smith joined Dominique Ducharme as an assistant coach with Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team at the 2013 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament, winning a gold medal and was named OHL coach of the year in 2013-14.

Oshawa Generals President and Owner, Rocco Tullio says, “We are extremely excited for DJ! He has worked extremely hard to develop himself as one of the elite coaches in junior hockey. We know he will represent our country and organization well in their quest for hockey gold.”

Oshawa Generals General Manager, Roger Hunt says, “It is fantastic that DJ has been recognized as one of the best young coaches in the country. He has done a great job with our players over the last three years. We support him 100% and wish him and Canada all the best in next year’s World Junior Tournament.”
