Hurricanes Bring Another Former NHLer Into the Fold


LETHBRIDGE: The Lethbridge Hurricanes are adding another former NHL player to the mix, introducing Brad Lukowich as the teams new assistant coach.


Lukowich spent 15-years in the NHL, winning Stanley Cups with Dallas in 1999 and Tampa Bay in 2004. He's also a two time Memorial Cup Champion with the Kamloops Blazers in 1994 and 1995.


While both Lukowich and Head Coach Drake Berehowsky, who was hired earlier this month, are both career defencemen, he's not worried about how they'll develop the organizations young forwards, "To teach the offense is basically, what would I do against them? If a guy's coming down on me, what are the hardest things for me to really defend against? So if you can flip it and tell our forwards, these are the things that are challenging for a defencemen, I think those are the things that are going to be helpful for us."


Lukowich added that he decided to come to Lethbridge because of his relationship with General Manager Brad Robson. He explained that while he did consider a few other interested teams, Robson had come to him some time ago with the idea of moving into coaching. From there he realized that our city presented the best opportunity to pursue that new career path.


As mentioned, the Hurricanes brought in former NHL player Drake Berehowsky June 10th as the organizations 12th head coach. He spent 13-years in the NHL.
