“I feel fortunate to have been able to go work with my brother the last two years,” commented General Manager / Head Coach, Shaun Clouston. “Cory brought a level of professionalism and commitment to our team on a daily basis. He played a key role in making sure our players were well prepared for each and every game.”

It was a very rewarding two seasons working alongside my brother, Shaun, and the rest of the hockey operations staff. I want to thank all of the players for their dedication and commitment they displayed on winning back-to-back BC Division championships and wish the organization the best in the upcoming season,” concluded Cory Clouston.
