He led the Mooseheads to a Maritimes Division title in 2022-23 and a berth in the QMJHL’s Gilles

Courteau Trophy Finals with the second-best record in franchise history at 50-11-4-3. “We would like to thank Sylvain for his unwavering commitment, dedication and immense contributions to the Mooseheads the last six years. We wish him the best in his future,” said Sam Simon, Chairman

and Owner of the Halifax Mooseheads, and Peter Simon, President of Simon Sports.

The search for a new Head Coach will begin immediately.
