Matt Keillor joined the Grande Prairie Storm in Christmas of 2016, and coached the team to a meteoric rise in the standings in the 2017-18 season. Previous to the Storm, he received Coach of the Year honours twice as head coach for the CNHA Midget & Bantam AAA programs. He moved to Grande Prairie in 2014 to work as Technical Director for Grande Prairie Minor Hockey. He was an assistant coach with Hockey Alberta and won back to back gold medals at the Western Canadian Championships. He brings a wealth of hockey knowledge to the Storm, and coaches a fast, high-paced brand of hockey that is exhilerating to watch.  Eric Hein joins the Grande Prairie Storm after having spent the past two hockey seasons with the Ottawa 67's of the Ontario Hockey League. He obtained an Honours degree in Recreation and Sport Business from the University of Waterloo and spent the past 5 years working for a family-owned accounting firm (Hein & Associates) in Ottawa and managing the Capital Recreation Hockey League. He brings a progressive view to the business of sport and is looking forward to getting involved in the community and building on last year's success.
