This morning The Gazette published the first of what will be a weekly Hockey Inside/Out section in print, focusing on the Canadiens’ new management/coaching team.
Pat Hickey wrote features on new GM Marc Bergevin and assistant GM Rick Dudley; Dave Stubbs did a feature on new/old coach Michel Therrien, and Brenda Branswell, a new member of the sports department, wrote stories on new Hamilton Bulldogs coach Sylvain Lefebvre and director of player development Martin Lapointe.
Branswell has been at The Gazette since 2003 and spent the last six years on the education beat – but she knows her hockey. Like most Gazette readers, she grew up watching the Canadiens win six Stanley Cups in the 1970s and is looking forward to her new assignment writing about the team.
Next week we’re planning to focus on the new faces added to the Habs’ on-ice roster during the offseason.
