Monture behind Akwesasne bench

It looks like Dean George isn't the only OLA Junior B coach moving up the ranks.
Stew Monture, one of the up-and-coming coaches in Canada stepped down as the Six Nations Rebels bench boss to become the head coach of the Junior A Akwesasne Indians.
Joining Monture is assistant Cory Bomberry.
Monture arrives in Akwesasne after four brilliant years in Six Nations, winning the J.A. MacDonald Trophy (OLA Jr B championship) twice and a pair of Founders Cups (Canadian Jr B titles).
On May 3, 2009, Monture became the Rebels' franchise all-time winningest regular season coach as he surpassed the original Rebels coach, Vince Hill, who guided the 1996, 1997 and 1998 teams to 41 regular season wins.
Monture played two years with the Rebels and finished with 20-GP 27-G 28-A 55-Pts 61-PIM. He then graduated to play for the Six Nations Arrows from 2001 to 2004 and accumulated 226 points on 111 goals, 115 assists with 133 penalty minutes in just 74 games. Headded 55 points in the playoffs on 28 goals, 27 assists plus 91 post-season penalty minutes. 
Monture was drafted by the  Toronto Rock in the second round, 13th overall in the 2003 Entry Draft.
Taking over the coaching reigns for the 2011 Rebels will be two experienced coaches in Ron Chatelain and Cam Bomberry. Also returning to the coaching staff will be Derek General and Murray Porter, while last season's  Rebels captain Jason Johns will round out the coaching staff.
