Brett Reusch is stepping away from his perch atop the Richmond Sockeyes’ bench.
Wanting to spend more time with his family, the longtime head coach of the local Pacific Junior Hockey League team leaves the club with a sparkling record of 73-25-3-5. He also guided the Sockeyes to the Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial championship in 2017-18.
On behalf of the team’s ownership group, Doug Paterson extended his thanks to Reusch.
“I would like to thank our head coach for all his dedication and contributions towards the success of our organization. All the best to you and your family, Brett.”
The Sockeyes are also losing an assistant coach. After a year behind the bench, Tyler Andrews is stepping aside to focus on work. He captained the team to the Cyclone Taylor Cup in the 2017-18 season.
