Swan Valley Stampeders (MJHL) make Coaching Change
The Swan Valley Stampeders have decided to part ways with head coach and general manager, Erik Petersen (pictured above right).
In a corresponding move, Asst. Coach Darren Webster (pictured above left) has been appointed as interim head coach for the remainder of the 2016-17 season.
Petersen who became the Stamps Head Coach/GM just before the 2013/14 season compiled a record of 96 wins- 118 loss & 27 overtime losses. The Stampeders also reached the postseason in each of his first 3 season.
Swan Valley currently in 2016/17 are in the 8th and final playoff spot in the MJHL standings with a record of 19-33-5 on the season, good for 43 points.
The Stampeders quest for the post season continue with their next game on Wednesday night when they visit the Portage Terriers at 7:30
Remarks and thanks to former Head coach/GM Erik Petersen:
I would like thank Erik Petersen for everything he has done for me the last 4 years as he was the Head Coach/GM of the Swan Valley Stampeders.
As a broadcaster all you ask for is for a Head coach that is very accommodating with pregame and post game interviews, trade or hockey news about the Stamps, and just making a broadcaster feel like he fits in and that's what Erik did for me his whole time in the Valley.
So I wish the absolute best to Erik and his family moving forward into the future, and would like to thank him once again for the good times and good memories spent at the rink.
