BREAKING: Blades part ways with Brockman


Saskatoon, SK
– The Saskatoon Blades have relieved Dean Brockman of his duties as Head Coach effective immediately.

“While this was a difficult decision for us to make, we felt our performance over the last month of the season was very disappointing and the team did not meet the expectations we set out for them,” said Blades General Manager Colin Priestner. “We have been in a playoff position two years in a row coming down the stretch and just haven’t been able to take that next step, which ultimately led us to this decision.”

Brockman has spent the past four seasons with the Blades; the first two as an Assistant Coach and the last two as Head Coach. During his tenure as bench boss, Brockman went 63-68-10-3 over the course of two seasons.

“We’d like to thank Dean and his family for all their hard work over the last four seasons and wish him nothing but the best in the future.” said Priestner.
