From Matt…
“It’s always been my dream to work with the Naumenko family. Learning how to approach the game of hockey in my youth started with Russ’s father Wally Naumenko and my father, Don. I am excited to be a part of the Bulldogs organization, as well as the Naumenko-Noga connection coming full circle.”
