Predators Welcome Home our New Skills Director
Submitted By Kari Cipolla on Sunday, September 20, 2020

Our organization is ecstatic to welcome home Kyle Bochek as our Association's Director of Player Development. Kyle is a native of Port Severn, Ontario and an alumnus of our North Central Predator's organization. In discussing this hire, NCP President Roger Crandell shared, "Kyle is a young man who can serve as a great example for all our Predator kids...hard work and perseverance can pay off when you make a full commitment to fulfill your hockey dreams

. Kyle went undrafted out of his minor midget year. As opposed to sulking, Kyle rolled up his sleeves and went to work. He turned an incredible work ethic into a 5 year junior career (PJHL - Midland Jr. C Flyers , OJHL - Collingwood Blues and culminating with 3 years in the OHL - Kingston Frontenacs and Saginaw Spirit). Following his junior career he spent another 7 seasons as a professional player. We are extremely excited to welcome Kyle home and for him to work closely with our players and coaches in helping them reach their hockey dreams."Since his playing career ended, Kyle has spent the last three years as a Skills Development Coach for the Ottawa 67's of the OHL along with a similar role with the Carleton University Raven's Men's Hockey team. He has also been the owner of "Chekers Hockey Academy" and the Program Coordinator of "Next Generation Hockey & Fit."When asked about his involvement with the Preds, Kyle stated, "it's great to come full circle. I am real happy to be back in Port Severn and to give back to our local players - kids like me, from small home towns like mine who love the game of hockey."When asked about his philosophy, Kyle stated,  "I have developed a training regiment on and off ice that has helped me thrive and succeed in the Hockey World from one level to the next. I began playing junior hockey at the Junior C level with the Midland Flyers at age 15, working my way up to the top Junior Hockey League in the world, the OHL. Having been undrafted I had to prove myself through hard work and perseverance to get a shot at the OHL. I dedicated my life to hockey and pushed my limits everyday on and off the ice and within just 2 seasons accomplished my first major goal in hockey, making it to the OHL. I understand the grind, hard work and dedication needed towards nutrition, off-ice conditioning and on-ice development to take your game from one level to the next. I am excited to work with our NCP coaching staff and players to help them get to their next level. Players who play with high skill & I.Q, tenacity and integrity are the hallmarks of great players and organizations. This is what we will promote in our athletes."Each week, Kyle will be on the ice with our clubs working closely with our coaches to push our athletes to succeed. We look forward to getting started on Sept. 28.
