Former NHLer Drake Berehowsky will be the new man in charge behind the bench, replacing Rich Preston who was let go a few months ago. General Manager Brad Robson made the announcement outside the Hurricanes dressing room Monday morning. Berehowsky becomes the 12th coach in Lethbridge Hurricanes history and tells me he's very excited to be moving his family to Lethbridge and to be part of the WHL.
Berehowsky has extensive experience as a player with six NHL teams, but also as an Assistant Coach in the AHL with Peoria and in the OHL with Barrie and Brampton. GM Robson says Berehowsky's coaching experience and his high performance coaching certification with Hockey Canada shows how well prepared he is.
I had a chance to speak with both Drake and Brad about the hiring.
