The Yorkton Terriers regret to announce the resignation of Don Chesney as the team’s Director of Public Relations and Marketing, a position he has held for the last two seasons.
Don has been an integral part of our team and a great ambassador for the Yorkton Terriers for the past six hockey seasons.
We want to acknowledge Don’s contributions to the SJHL and, in particular, to the Yorkton Terrier organization.
Don’s coaching career in the SJHL spanned twelve years where he coached the Melville Millionaires, Lebret Eagles and Yorkton Terriers. During this time he was twice named the SJHL Coach of the Year. Don coached the Terriers for two seasons from 2002‐2004 before retiring from the coaching ranks.
In the fall of 2010 Don returned to the Yorkton Terriers to serve as the team’s General Manager & Director of Marketing. Under Don’s guidance from 2010‐2014, the Terriers enjoyed a great amount of success on and off the ice. The team captured three division pennants (2011,2013,2014), an SJHL regular season pennant (2014), appeared in three SJHL League finals winning two league championships (2013,2014), a Western Canada Cup Championship (2014) and culminating with the crown jewel of Junior A hockey, an RBC Cup National Championship in 2014.
Don was also inducted into the Yorkton Sports Hall of Fame in 2014.
On behalf of the board, staff and all Yorkton Terrier supporters, we want to thank Don for his hard work and dedication to the team and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
