“Ottawa, Ontario – The Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2 is proud to announce that longtime Westport Rideaus‘ General Manager Michael “Bundy” Seed is the winner of the 2018-19 CCHL2 GM of the Year award.
Seed, a Frankville native, is finishing off his 23rd season in the Westport Rideaus organization. He started his career with the Rideaus as an Assistant Coach under former Head Coach Jeff Snow in the 1995-96 season. In the 2000-01 season, he took over as the Westport Rideaus’ General Manager and has been there ever since, compiling 484 wins, five first place finishes in the EOJHL and one finals appearance.
This season, the first time winner of the GM of the Year award has helped the Westport Rideaus to their 20th consecutive playoff appearance after clinching a playoff berth last week. Westport is currently battling for the first place seed in the Richardson Division with the Perth Blue Wings, Brockville Tikis and Carleton Place Jr Canadians.
Smiths Falls Bears and Westport Rideaus’ Owner Joshua Filoso said that he is very deserving of this award.
“He has not only managed this team to the playoffs, but he has coached the Rideaus’ to a top playoff contender. The Smiths Falls Bears and Westport Rideaus could not be happier for Mike.”
“Bundy is a first class GM and overall first class guy. He’s well known around the league and around the hockey world. Bundy has put together a team that has the ability to hit the ground running once the playoffs start. In Westport, Bundy is not only the GM but the go to man for everything the Rideaus do and he does a fantastic job doing so,” said Filoso.
The Westport Rideaus’ have three more games left on their schedule. They will take on Brockville, Athens and Winchester in the final week of the season.”
