Coach Kevin St. Jacques has been nominated as "Coach of the Year" in the USPHL
The Atlanta Knights Head Coach Kevin St. Jacques has been nominated as "Coach of the Year" in the USPHL - USP3 2016-2017 season. Coach St. Jacques was a 6th round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks and had a 16 year professional career before joining the knights 3 seasons ago. He has lead his squad into the playoffs every year and to the finals in the 2014-15 season. During this season he pushed the team through some injuries and call ups to lead them into the playoffs. During the off week before playoffs the team came together and focused and pushed through the first round to beat the 3rd seed Carolina Eagles in 2 straight games to advance to the next round against the 43-1 Florida Blades.
Unfortunately we as a team did not get the effort needed to beat the Blades. "It was definitely disappointing to play and end the season the way we did but I was proud of the season we had, the guys went through a lot of adversity and not once did they turn on each other. All in all a very successful season"
"Being nominated for "Coach of the Year" means a lot to me and is a tribute to those I'm surrounded by." I am very grateful to the support I have received from my family and the Knights family.
