is with great sadness and a heavy heart we formally announce the recent and
sudden passing of WMHA member, Chad Doucet or “Coach Chad” as he was known to
many within the Welland Tiger family.
Coach Chad was a beloved volunteer with WMHA for many years. Most recently, he
coached both of his boys in the U7 and U15 Divisions. The loss of Coach Chad
has been devastating to our community and his warming presence in our rinks
will forever be missed.
Coach Chad was not only a cherished hockey volunteer but also a loving husband,
father, son, brother and friend to many in our community. Our hearts go out to
all of his family and friends including his wife Lindsay and their two boys,
Ryder and Carter.
Coach Chad will forever be known for his huge heart, warm smile and a deep
passion for the game of hockey that he shared with many of our children over
