The Maine Nordiques of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) have announced changes to their coaching staff for the 2023-24 season.

The Nordiques welcome aboard Nick Skerlick to the NAHL squad, as he will be taking over the role of head coaching duties for the team. Nick has been with the organization since its inception and was the Director of the Nordiques Academy, along with being the Head Coach for the 18U team and directing the recruitment for the organization. Nick also brings along a vast experience of hockey knowledge and play. Nick sports not only a great coaching record, but a tremendous player record as well; playing in multiple junior hockey teams, USHL, NCAA and Professionally. Nick looks forward to bringing his winning culture and experience to the NAHL squad with the goal of not only developing players to the next level of hockey, but bringing a Robertson Cup Championship to the city of Lewiston, Maine.

The Maine Nordiques have named Ryan Shelley associate head coach. Shelley brings not only a great hockey background when it comes to overall team performance, but as well as goaltending. Shelley brings in a diverse background; consisting of experience in the NCAA, NAHL, NA3HL and NAPHL. Shelley joined the organization in the 2019-2020 season in the NA3HL. Shelly then served as an Assistant Coach for the 18U team, was an analyst on Hockey TV during intermissions, and was the teams video coach. Shelley was also a backup goaltender to NHL’s Jimmie Howard and Ben Bishop at the University of Maine. Shelley also suited up for the Framingham State Ram’s for seven games in the 2008-2009 season. Shelley’s experience with hockey, college, and goaltending development will play a key factor in leading the organization to the Robertson Cup Championship.

The Maine Nordiques would also like to welcome back Kyle Warren as an Assistant Coach for the NAHL team. Kyle Warren has been with the Organization since its inception and has helped the organization in the 18U, 16U, and NAHL squads. Kyle played in the NCAA and is a forward who will help the team bring an elite scoring punch. Kyle brings a great player perspective behind the bench and will help members of the NAHL team through the college process and will have a major hand in the team’s success this season.

The Nordiques bring in a huge amount of talent and experience behind the bench that will undoubtedly lead the team to success, and develop players not only as elite hockey players, but great young men off the ice.
