Although the Vipers ‘06 level does not have an Elite team, Tinkham said he will have an instructional role for his youngest son Lucas’ team as well.
“My 6-year-old is just starting out, and I’m trying to get the kids up and running,” Tinkham said. “It’s helping my resume and making sure the kids get great coaching. With my experience and background, I’ve been able to keep them under my wing. Right now, it’s all youth hockey.”
