Getting the opportunity to work for Mr. Sutter is a special opportunity and I am very fortunate to do so. As proud as I am to join the organization, my young family is just as excited to join a great community like Red Deer.  I would like to thank the Corpus Christi IceRays organization, Mr. Lange and Cass Lange along with a quality staff and a great group of players made this opportunity possible. They believed in me enough to give me my first head coaching job, the players trusted our plan and we laid a good foundation for success.”

Brent Sutter – “Since the season ended, and our two assistant coaching positions became available, we had a lot of top candidates apply for the positions. Through the process of researching our candidates, and interviewing some, we have been very fortunate to have it come to Brad and Ryan as the two people that fit all the needs we are looking for in these coaching positions. Although young, both have a wealth of experience and will be great additions to the staff. Their loyalty, work ethic, enthusiasm, communication skills, and creativity on how the game is played today will be very beneficial to the players and our staff.”
