As Ontario Hockey League training camps get underway this week, a goaltender with local ties has found himself a new job with the Flint Firebirds.

Luc Lobsinger has been appointed as a goaltending scout, the team announced late last week.

Lobsinger suited up for the Cambridge Winter Hawks for parts of two seasons in 2004-2005 and 2005-2005 before embarking on an OHL career of his own.

"We are excited to be adding Luc,” Firebirds general manager Dave McParlan said in a release on the team's website.

"He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience at the goaltending position, and will fit in well with our scouting staff.”

During his time in Cambridge, Lobsinger put together a 26-10-0 regular season record. In 23 games during the 2005-2006 season he posted a 2.73 goals against average and a .925 save percentage.

From there he went on to play 46 games over three seasons for the Mississauga IceDogs and later the Niagara IceDogs, compiling a 17-19-4 record with a .391 goals against average and .877 save percentage.

His coaching career, which began in 2012, has featured stops with Brock University, the IceDogs and Team Switzerland's U18 women's national team. He now operates Lobsinger Goaltending in the Niagara region.
