Clousten Going to AHL / Assistant Coach by Friday?

Cory Clousten is leaving big shoes to fill in Cranbrook... this from the Kootenay Ice today:

Cranbrook, BC -- Jeff Chynoweth, General Manager of the Kootenay ICE Hockey Club, today announced Head Coach Cory Clouston has resigned his position. Clouston has been with the ICE organization since June 1999 and was promoted to Head Coach in July 2002.

He is the all-time winningest coach in franchise history (209 wins) and has a career regular season winning percentage of .638 (209-110-41). In five years as bench boss, his teams recorded three 40 plus win seasons and two 100 point campaigns.

Cory was the Head Coach of Canada's Under 18 team which won gold in August 2006 and was the WHL Coach of the Year in two of the past three seasons (2004-2005, 2006-2007).


The Swift Current Broncos should have a new Assistant Coach in place by the end of the week. The team is set to announce Dave Hunchak's replacement after he accepted the head coaching job of the Moose Jaw Warriors.

I'll keep you updated on the latest there....

WOW. What state are they in? It's so late in the season, and never mind one coach, they've lost both. Do you think Jeff will prevail Jon? HAHA

I'll ask Deano that.

Wow Ernie, I'm impressed. You're that much on a buddy-buddy basis with Dean?

Yeah, you better get all the details from him next time you're over for supper and out for drinks, then spill all the info over to us.

Swift Current's #1 source for Broncos info = Big Ern!
