Primeau Returns to Philadelphia, This time with the Revolution Keith Primeau, 15 year NHL veteran, and 2 Time NHL All Star, has parted ways with Team Comcast after 7 seasons to become the Director of Player Development with the Philadelphia Revolution. "It's with great pride that we welcome Keith Primeau to our Organization", said General Manager Chris Kanaly. "The opportunity to hire a coach and mentor of this magnitude only comes around once in a career. The fact that we could shift the balance of power in this market at the same time is an added bonus". What Kanaly is referring to is that Primeau, who built the Team Comcast program into what it is today, is leaving that organization to continue the job of building the Revolution into a National Power. "It wasn't an easy decision to make the move and take this job with the Revolution, but it was the right one for sure. Chris (Kanaly) has been training my son (Cayden Primeau) the past few seasons and we have developed our own relationship as well." Primeau went on to say, "The Revolution Organization is taking the proper steps with player recruitment, athletic development, and giving their kids the best opportunities to advance to the NCAA ranks." In his new role as Director of Player Development, Primeau will oversee all players in the Organization from the U12 Elite Program on up to the Junior A EHL Team which is coached by Colorado College Alum, James Laux, who is entering his 6th season at the helm in Philadelphia. "Having a coach of Keith's ability on the staff will be second to none. His proven track record of developing great players will certainly help our kids over the coming seasons", added Kanaly. Primeau is expected to join the Revolution Staff this coming week to start the evaluation and recruitment process for the 2014 – 2015 season. Revolution Owner Phil Pulley commented, "We are very excited to have Keith here. We believe that his addition will continue the growth and development of the organization and its players for years to come. The synergies and like minded philosophies are bringing a new dawn to youth and junior hockey here in Philadelphia.” For more information on the Philadelphia Revolution and their Organization, please visit the website www.philadelphiarevolution.net
