Neepawa (MJHL) promote Howden to dual role

The Neepawa Natives Junior “A” hockey club is pleased announced that current Head Coach, Dustin Howden has become the team’s Head Coach and General Manager. Neepawa Natives board president Ken Waddell said, “The board of directors has full confidence in Dustin Howden and his abilities to take the team in the direction that he’d like to go with it. It’s a bit of a new direction, but building on to what we consider a fairly strong foundation, in many respects.”

Howden said, “It’s an opportunity, first and foremost. Discussions recently with the organization lead from one thing to another. We have been able to come to an agreement, so I’m very excited about this new chapter and the challenges that it’ll present. It’s exciting to work with the staff [of the franchise]. We’re not looking to change things up too much, but just keep moving ahead on the path we’ve been going on. It’s been going pretty good the past few years. The work done by Myles Cathcart, as well as our scouting staff has the team pointed in the right direction. We’re just looking to expand on what we have been doing.”
