It's funny the things you hear about when it comes to junior hockey, while at an NHL practice. After the Rangers skate in Edmonton this morning, I found there's a new candidate for the Kamloops Blazers coaching job, and it sounds like the Blazers are doing more than just kicking tires.
Word is Humboldt Broncos bench boss Dean Brockman is flying to Kamloops this weekend to meet with management about the post currently held by interim head coach Scott Ferguson.
Brockman, who was close to getting the job in Regina before Curtis Hunt became available, has nothing left to accomplish in Humboldt. In his 11 years with the Broncos he's guided the team to 4 league titles, 3 trips to the Royal Bank Cup and 2 national titles.
He'd make a great choice as coach, and I've been told will make a really good G.M. someday. If he does get the job, it's long overdue.
