The excitement in Scott Walker's voice was palpable. Tonight, he will be behind the bench for the first time as a head coach, leading the Guelph Storm against the London Knights in an OHL game.
"I'm pretty excited about this new chapter," Walker said today. "Who knows what it will bring. The race is one to see if I'll lose all my hair first or if it goes totally gray.
"I need to see if I enjoy it, to see if I'm any good at it. The one thing I do know is that I love hockey and I want to stay a part of it."
UPDATE: The Storm lost 3-2 in Walker's first game.
