Todd Reid has coached at the CIS level (UOIT), OJHL (Dudley Hewitt and Buckland Cup champion with the Wellington Dukes), and minor hockey at AAA, BB, B, and CC levels. He has been the head coach for OMHA and International Silver Stick championship teams. Todd played Major Midget with Quinte, and then went on to play with the Wellington Dukes and the Guelph Gryphons in the CIS (Queens Cup champions).
Over 15 years ago he started his coaching with the Quinte AAA Major Midget program. He has coached many players that have moved on to all levels of hockey. One of those players is Derek Smith. Derek played Major Midget for Quinte and affiliated with the Wellington Dukes that year. He went on to get a scholarship at Lake Superior State, than was signed by the Ottawa Senators. He has played pro hockey for a number of years, most recently with the Calgary Flames. Derek has been quoted as saying, “Major Midget hockey is great for a lot of players because it gives them an extra year to develop and play with players their own age. They get another year to develop physically and mentally to prepare for the next level. Todd will do an amazing job working with all levels of junior programs and will promote his players. They will become better players, but more importantly, he develops great players into good people. Best of luck to Todd and the Quinte Major Midgets!”
Todd’s primary goal is to develop players. He believes the best way to do so, is to strive to win Championships. Todd is very excited about working with local Junior Hockey programs at the Junior C, B, OJHL, and OHL levels. Todd has stated, “I have worked with a lot of key people at the local junior levels. I look forward to developing and continuing those relationships to support player goals. There is a level of hockey for all players. I want to support all players I work with to help find the right fit for their development, at the right time in their career.”
Todd and his staff will be around your local arenas recruiting. He is happy to answer any questions you may have. Congrats Todd!
