Steve is very pleased to return back to the Wild organization to take on the head coaching position with the Wilds Major Midget AAA team, which will mark his 11th season as a minor hockey coach.
Steve is no stranger to the Wild organization as he led the 1997 age group of players to an incredible regular season win-loss-tie record of 46-7-6 at the Minor & Major Bantam AAA seasons, earning Back-To-Back League Championships; 2011/12 OEMHL-AAA Bantam Playoff Champions; and, Semi-Finalist at the 2012 All-Ontario Bantam AAA Championships.
In addition to obtaining Hockey Canada’s High Performance 1 Coaching accreditation, Steve spent 12 years as a minor hockey official, achieving level 3 certification, and was the 2012/13 Director of Coach/Player Development with the Cumberland Jr Grads Minor Hockey Club.
Steves coaching accomplishments would not have been possible without the continual support of his lovely wife, Gail, two sons (Carter & Jordan), and his coach mentor/brother - Vince (former CJHL & OHL head coach and current assistant coach with the Berlin Eisbaren).
When away from the bench, Steve is either sitting in the stands cheering on his son - Jordan (Metcalfe Jets Jr. B) or behind the desk as VP of Forensic Services/Corporate Advisory Restructuring Services with the international professional services firm PwC.
