Mario Pouliot joins Huskies as head coach, general manager

Mario Pouliot has joined the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies as Head Coach and General Manager. 

A news release says the Acadie-Bathurst Titan granted the Huskies permission to speak with Pouliot about the vacant position following the departure of head coach and general manager Gilles Bouchard, who recently joined the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL. 

The Titan hired Pouliot as head coach ahead of the 2014-15 season and he has held the position since then. 

Although he missed the playoffs in his first season in Bathurst, Pouliot went on to lead the Titan to three consecutive playoff appearances including capturing the President Cup and Memorial Cup championships this past season. 

In four seasons, the 54-year-old put together a regular season record of 126-116-30.
