2016 Hockey Coaches Conference
Topic: 20 Years a Shark: Lessons Learned
Presenter: Roy Sommer
Roy Sommer is the all-time wins leader in the AHL, breaking the previous mark of 636 wins on February 10, 2016. What’s even more impressive is that he achieved all of those wins with the same franchise. Summer has been employed by the San Jose sharks since 1996 and held the role of Head Coach of their AHL team since 1998. In his presentation Roy examines what he’s learned during his 20 years as a Shark. Specifically, he identifies there areas he excels at; team building, communication and running great practices.
Roy is candid, funny and shoots from the hip. It’s easy to see why his players love playing for him and why the Sharks have put him in charge of grooming their top prospects for over 20 years!
