Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Fort Wayne - these cities are just the start for Indianapolis General Manager and Coach, Ron Ullyot. He was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan - lived for five years in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan where his father (Ken Ullyot) was General Manager and Coach of the Prince Albert Mintos - moved to Fort Wayne in the summer of 1958. Ron has had coaching jobs in Fort Worth, Texas - Columbus, Ohio - Port Huron, Michigan - Fort Wayne, Indiana and he is now in Indianapolis. How does someone cope with that type of lifestyle?

I really love the challenge of a new city, developing friendships and also the task of building hockey players into a team."
