All-Star Coach brings Consistency to Lumberjacks’ Organization
Burlington, VT -- Though only in his second season with the Vermont Lumberjacks Elite team, Head Coach Jim Mosso has demonstrated his ability to consistently perform at a high level. Last season, he was selected for the All-Star Game and was honored as the EHL Elite Coach of the Year. This season, his team holds a 26-4-2 record and currently sits in first place overall in the Eastern Hockey League. In the world of hockey, consistency is the metric often used to measure success. Most are able execute at a high level; far fewer can do so over and over again. Approaching the end of a second consecutive regular season with the Jacks, it’s beginning to look like Mosso’s success is no fluke.
“Coach Mosso’s selection as a coach in this year’s all-star game is no surprise. I have been impressed since I first met him and have become even more impressed by his success with the Lumberjacks. I respect him, his team respects him and the League respects him. We are very proud to have him as part of our organization.” -Stephen Lary (Lumberjacks Owner)
“It is an honor to be selected to the all-star game three years in a row. Of course, I am proud of myself. I work hard every day. But I owe a lot of my success to my players. They listen well, play hard and are very coachable. I do what I can to lead them and help them succeed, but at the end of the day, they are the one’s getting it done on the ice.” -Coach Mosso
When it comes to the Lumberjacks Organization, Mosso isn’t the only one being recognized for his success this season. In total 6 players from the Jacks were selected to the All-Star Game, which includes: Mason Emoff, Andrew Bechard, Kieren Webster, Cory Doney, Michael Karas, and Mitchell Stockley,. With these all-star caliber players, it is easy to see why the team has demonstrated such strong play this season.
Puck drop for the 2017 EHL Elite All-Star Game is set for Monday January 30th at 1PM.
