Trapp Named Director of Scouting
July 30, 1996

OTTAWA - Canadian Hockey announced today the hiring of Barry Trapp as director of scouting for its national junior teams program.

"Barry brings with him outstanding credentials in scouting and talent evaluation," said Bob Nicholson, Canadian Hockey's senior-vice president, hockey operations. "His years of involvement and networking with major junior hockey and NHL Central Scouting will only strengthen our national junior teams program."

Trapp, 54, has been with the National Hockey League's Central Scouting for the past ten years, and was named their first chief scout in 1993.

"I'm excited in working with Canadian Hockey," said Trapp. "I was especially impressed with how the organization worked during last year's World Juniors in Boston. It's an exceptional national junior team program."

Trapp will begin working with Canadian Hockey immediately, heading to Calgary at the end of the week for the national junior team's training camp from August 2-8. He will then travel to Nelson and Castlegar, B.C., from August 13-18 for the Air Canada Pacific Cup - a four country under-18 men's tournament with Canada, Finland, Japan and the United States.

"I'm also looking forward to working with younger players again," added Trapp, who coached in the Western Hockey League with the Regina Pats from 19 and the Moose Jaws Warriors in 1985-86. "This is a great opportunity for me to give something back to hockey."

The resident of Fort Qu'Appelle, Sask., and level 5 certified coach with Canadian Hockey, also played seven years in the Toronto Maple Leaf organization.

Trapp replaces Ray Payne, who will be leaving Canadian Hockey to return to the NHL.
