Mike Kelly – Vice President/GM
The former OHL Executive of the year in 1994-95 with the Guelph Storm, re-joined the team as Vice President and General Manager in November of 2010, after a brief 13-year absence.
The man who will oversee the team’s Hockey Operations has been in the business for a long time. He was the General Manager with the Guelph Storm during the team’s inaugural year of 1991, and stayed until 1997, winning a Hamilton Spectator Trophies in 1994-95 and 1995-96 as the OHL’s Regular Season Champions. He then became the Director of Amateur Scouting with the Calgary Flames for two years, before he was offered a job as the Vice President and General Manager of the Windsor Spitfires, lasting seven years. After a year as head coach in 2006-2007 with the Niagara Ice Dogs, he worked for Hockey Club Alleghe in Italy. In 2010, he came back to North America where he worked as a Pro Scout with the Carolina Hurricanes, and shortly thereafter became Vice President and General Manager of the Guelph Storm Hockey Organization.
Mike and his wife Denise reside in Guelph.
