Ritch Kanally, GM of the Lakers for the past three years, has cited family health issues for his resignation.
Kanally thanked the organization and its fanbase in a statement released Thursday morning:
“I would like to thank the Lakers entire organization, board, fans, sponsors, staff, and in particular the players. I have enjoyed my time in the PJHL but for family reasons have decided to return home to spend more time with my father for the time being. I am and will continue to be a big supporter of the Lakers and the PJHL going forward and wish them both nothing but success”
No replacement has been named. Lakers President Darryl Lucio anticipates a quick turn-around as resumes are already anticipated.
For anyone wishing to apply, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Darryl Lucio at 519-365-4615.
The Lakers organization thanks Ritch for his service and support.
