DJ was a crucial factor in bringing the fifth Memorial Cup to the city of Oshawa. We wish DJ and his family nothing but the best in his future endeavours.”

After winning Coach of the Year with the Generals in 2013-14, DJ led Oshawa to set franchise records in the 2014-15 season. The team set a franchise high record with the most points in a regular season with 108, and set the record for the most wins in a single season with 51 in their 78 year history.

As a Windsor native, DJ spent three seasons playing for the Spitfires before moving up to the AHL and NHL. He spent most of his playing career with the St. John’s Maple Leafs, but played a total of 11 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and 34 for the Colorado Avalanche.
