Danny  Lepage

Danny Lepage has been an employee at RHP Training Centre since 2018. He is in the process of finishing his science degree in Kinesiology at Laurentian University and in the fall, he will begin his Master’s in Human Kinetics at Laurentian. Danny began his hockey career at the tender age of 3 and grew up playing for his hometown Walden Devils for many years, followed by various A, AA and AAA teams across the Sudbury District.

 

After playing prep school hockey at Hoosac School in upstate New York, Danny came back home to play Junior ‘A’ hockey in the NOJHL for the Sudbury Nickel Barons and then the Rayside Balfour Canadians, all of which he was a leader on the team. After 3 years of Junior, he signed with the Varsity Team at Laurentian University and played with them for 3 full seasons.

 

Danny recently finished his university hockey playing career. After many great memories he has decided to shift his focus towards his academic and professional career. For this reason, he decided to retire from playing. Danny is now looking forward to new challenges while developing and coaching players in the sport he loves.

 

Danny began coaching and instructing a number of years ago at Adventure North Hockey School and Hockey Opportunity Camp before joining the RHP Team. He enjoys and is committed to coaching and instructing and sharing his passion and knowledge of the game. Danny believes that this is a great way to continue being involved in hockey. Danny has an abundance of hockey knowledge to share with all of his clients.

 

He is looking forward to seeing everyone on the ice at RHP!

Megan Potvin

 

My name is Megan Potvin and I am currently studying Human Kinetics at Laurentian University. Born and raised in Sudbury, I am a graduate of Lockerby Composite School where I participated in school sports such as flag football, soccer, and hockey throughout all four years. I also grew up playing with the Sudbury District Girls Association, but more specifically for the Sudbury Lady Wolves. Throughout my eleven years of playing hockey with the association, I learned many life skills as well as great hockey tips to pass on to younger generations. In the last two years, I had the opportunity to be a part of the Midget AA and Pewee AA Lady Wolves coaching staff. This role allowed me to learn a different aspect of the game, understand the importance of building relationships with the players, other coaches and parents as well as how to foster skill development and play. From this experience, I have reaffirmed my love of the sport and enjoy working with children to help them learn to love the game as much as I do.
