The Board of Directors of the Estevan Bruins announce that Head Coach and General Manager, Chris Lewgood, has been relieved of his duties with the hockey club effective immediately.

Bruins President, Cory Prokop, announced today that the board made this very difficult decision after determining that the future success of the team, both on and off the ice, would be best served with new leadership at the GM/Head Coach position.

Chris served as the GM/Head Coach of the Estevan Bruins since the summer of 2013, enjoying one of the longest tenures at this position in team history. The club made the SJHL playoffs each of his 7 years behind the bench, including a trip to the Canalta Cup finals in 2017/18 where the Bruins lost in Game 7 to the Nipawin Hawks. The Board of Directors would like thank Chris for his contributions to the success of the hockey club during his tenure as GM/Head Coach and would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

The selection for a new GM/Head Coach will begin immediately, and details for applicants will be released in the coming days.
