Lethbridge Hurricanes Hire Sports Psychologist

The Lethbridge Hurricanes announced Monday (June 17), the hiring of Kyle McDonald as their High Performance Coach for the upcoming season.

Hurricanes General Manager Brad Robson calls this a step in the right direction especially with a young team. “This is the way for all teams including the NHL. Having an enhancement coach, like Kyle who knows what it takes in working with younger players, is a valuable tool in dealing with a young team. We believe Kyle’s experience in coaching at all levels will only help us as we continue to grow and develop in the future.”

McDonald has over a decade of experience in coaching hockey (and golf) at various levels of elite athletic competition. He’s created and implemented mental and skills programs for both players and coaches and owns a sport psychology consulting firm.

Season Ticket Update:

The Lethbridge Hurricanes would also like to remind their fans that the deadline for Loyalty and Early Bird Pricing on Season Tickets for 2013-2014 is this Friday, June 21st. Fans can call the Hurricanes Ticket Office at (403) 328-1986 or come by in person during regular office hours between 9:00am and 4:30pm Monday through Friday.

  1. I checked the staff on the canes website and it nowhere did I see a McDonald employed with the canes. Must be an in-law.


  2. I don't know why anyone in their right mind would want to come and work with this team anyway, considering the negative comments that pop up immediately after every announcement.


  3. This team must have won the lottery , attendance goes up and the BOD spends like a bunch of drunken sailors !! Was this team not in a ton of debt at the start of last season ? Did we not just buy out another coach and gm ?Did we not just overpay for a new logo ? My question is where is the money coming from to pay these people ? Are we paying them peanuts to keep the circus going ? I dont get it !! Line of credit must be maxed to the nuts again !!!

    Off Side

  4. Hey Off Side how do you know they overpaid for the new logo? No price has ever been given! If you want to know the answers to you're question suggest you buy a share run for the board.

  5. Pat where did your Twitter info go? I enjoined checking your blog out and getting twitter info as well. Long Run

  6. At least the powers that be are trying to do something positive. The real test is winning hockey games. It usually solves all that ails you.

  7. Twitter feed is back up and running again. Thanks for the note Long Run.
