Jim Swanson, GM for most of the history of the HarbourCats’ existence, and a part of the ownership group, remains in the role of Managing Partner, along with GM of the first-year Nanaimo NightOwls, which will debut in the WCL in 2022.
Pelletier moves from the coaching staff to the front office.
“I’m excited and driven in taking on this role, and I know there is much more potential we can realize,” said Pelletier, 40, a former college and pro player who also spent time with the National Junior team. “I know the WCL, I know the Victoria market, and I believe in the vision of Jim and the ownership group. We have a great team in the front office and together we can accomplish even more for this community.”
Pelletier will continue to be GM/Head Coach of the Victoria Golden Tide of the CCBC, a team that just completed a successful first fall session and will resume play in March. Pelletier has lived in Victoria most of his life, and has roots even deeper now as he and wife Lindsay welcomed twin girls a month ago.
