Former Cyclones star Lansink named Asst. GM of Mitchell Hawks

The Mitchell Hawks have made a big personnel splash.

The Hawks announced officially this weekend that the organization has named former Listowel Cyclones star Holdyn Lansink as their Assistant General Manager. Lansink will be primarily handling player development and scouting duties to assist new GM Josh Keil.

Lansink had an illustrious junior career, winning two Cherrey Cups and a Sutherland Cup with Listowel while also becoming the Cyclones all-time scoring leader with 290 points. He also played a year with the Wingham Ironmen as a 16-year-old, and most recently played 19 games this season with the WOAA’s Seaforth Centenaires, putting up 44 points in just 19 games.

Hawks GM Josh Kiel broke the news of the hiring to MWO Sports recently, and also talked about his new role coming from behind the bench to the GM chair. You can find a link to that episode here:
