My name is Bruce Hornbrook, and I was born and raised here in Bathurst. Growing up, I played through the Bathurst Minor hockey system. At the age of 15, I was lucky enough to be drafted by the Titan’s (Charlie Leblanc was the coach at the time), which paved the way to an unforgettable five-year junior career. I split my junior career between the QMJHL and MHL, where I made lifelong friends and memories.
Once I graduated from Junior Hockey, I was lucky enough to have been recruited to one of the most prestigious schools in Canada, The Royal Military College of Canada. At RMC, I majored in Business Administration and served as one of the captains my final years at the University. Upon graduation, I decided to move back to Bathurst to join my father in the seafood industry, and to one day take over the family business.
My days of competitive hockey are over, although my passion and love for the game are still alive. Knowing Charlie from my time with the Titans, I knew he would be the perfect mentor to begin my coaching career. I look forward to working with these young studs and giving back to the game because it played a huge role in the person I am today.
