The St. Thomas University Tommies have found their man and Troy Ryan is his name.  Ryan, a Spryfield Nova Scotia native, has a very impressive resume and you can view it HERE

Most recently Ryan has been the Head Coach and General Manager of the Metro Marauders of the MHL.  Previous to this he was Head Coach of the Pictou Crushers of the MJHL.

He certainly has an impressive list of qualifications and he will certainly need to draw from them as he looks to rebuild the 3 and 25 Tommies of 2010-11.

Here is a quick look at some "Honors, Awards, and Special Recognition" Troy Ryan has received.
- 2007-2008 Hockey Nova Scotia Coach of the Year
- 2007-2008 MJAHL Coach of the Year
- 2008 Fred Page Cup Champions
- 2005-2006 MJAHL coach of the Year
- Guest coach for Team Canada at the 2003 World Junior Hockey Championship in Halifax.
