West would like to have a new assistant coach in place by the end of June as last years assistant coach Misko Antisin is the new Head coach with the Silverbacks Jr A team in Steamboat Springs, Colorado named the Wranglers of the RMJHL, but isn’t in a rush. At the very latest, he wants to have the position filled prior to training camp in August.
