A former Miramichi Timberwolves player accepts a new position

Phil Richer, who coached the Miramichi Rivermen major midget team last season, has been named the new head coach and general manager of the St. Stephen Aces in the MHL.

The 26-year-old Quebec native was tapped as associate coach and assistant general manager of the team earlier this summer.

Richer played two seasons with the Miramichi Timberwolves.
