“Jonah is a great team member to have join our staff, and we are excited to utilize his expertise and strong background to help the players and assist our staff. This move further reinforces our unwavering commitment to have the best development culture, philosophy, and strategy at the forefront of everything we do,” said Sam Simon-Chairman/Owner of the Halifax Mooseheads, and Peter Simon-President of Simon Sports.
