2018 Ag Summit Dinner Key note speaker Dwayne Gylywoychuk

The Virden Oil Capitals Hockey Club is excited to announce that Dwayne Gylywoychuk will be the Dinner Key Note Speaker at the Ag Summit this Coming Thursday, the 15th.

Gylywoychuk’s sparkling hockey resume goes back to 1989, when he started playing with the Brandon Wheat Kings.  Dwayne attended NHL camps in Hartford and Dallas while playing 9 years of pro hockey.  Since 2001, getting into the coaching ranks, Dwayne was a main stay with the Brandon Wheat Kings, including 1 year as head coach in 2013-14 season.  More recently since 2014, Gylywoychuk has been involved with Hockey Canada with the Woman’s hockey program, eventually winning an Olympic Silver medal in 2018 at the PyeongChang, South Korea Winter Olympics.

“Dwayne, “Chewy” as he is affectionately called, will be able to nicely relate to many of the Ag Producers in the crowd.  Chewy has many ties to the Ag Industry and his parallels with his Olympic coaching and preparation has many correlations to what it takes to be the best of the best in any line of work.  Chewy is a very relatable person who will bring plenty of hockey experiences along with laughter to our Ag Summit guests.  We are honoured to have Dwayne on-board as our dinner Keynote Speaker.” Stated Jamie Hodson, director of business and hockey operations.
