Lethbridge Hurricanes Introduce Drake Berehowsky as New Head Coach

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The Lethbridge Hurricanes officially introduced the 12th head coach in franchise history Monday morning.

 

Drake Berehowsky comes to the Canes from the Orlando Sun Bears of the ECHL, where he served as head coach and General Manager. In one season he guided the Minnesota Wild affiliate to the second best record and second best penalty kill of expansion teams.

 

Berehowsky also played for six NHL teams over a 13-year career, giving him an opportunity to learn from some of the top coaches in the world, including coaching legend Pat Burns.

 

As for the coaching style he plans on bringing to the organization, Berehowsky stressed structure and simplicity, "I think a lot of teams complicate things, I think a lot of people complicate the game, it's a very simple game played by complicated people and we just want to keep it simple. We want to get the puck in deep, we want to have fun, we want to score lots of goals, we want to be solid in our own end. The faster you defend and the faster you can get the puck off the opposition, the quicker you can go down and play in the offensive zone and that's what all the players want to do."

 

Hurricanes General Manager Brad Robson noted that 85 resumes were sent in to fill the coaching position, and that Berehowsky stood out above the rest because of his playing career and strong character.
