For a 10-year period from 1994 to 2004, the Flatrock Flyers were the dominant team in the Avalon East Hockey League, and Kevin “Fox” Fagan was the man behind the bench running things.

A St. John’s native, Fagan led the Flyers to nine league championships in 10 years, a streak which also included seven trips to the Herder Memorial Trophy Championship Final.

On three different occasions — in 1997, ’98 and ’03 — the Flyers won the Herder under Fagan’s guidance.

In addition to senior hockey, Fagan was a fixture at the minor level, with the old Christian Brothers Minor Hockey Association, which eventually became Celtics minor.

He coached a number of peewee and bantam teams to provincial championships. For seven years, Fagan served as the association’s technical director and head coach.
