There will be two more new faces behind the bench when the Humboldt Broncos start training camp next Friday.
Scott Barney has been named the Broncos’ assistant coach and Tyrol “Skip” Deeg will assume the dual role of athletic therapist-equipment manager.
Barney, 39, is a former NHLer originally from Ontario. During his diverse 19-year career he played 27 games with the L.A. Kings and Atlanta Thrashers.
“I feel very honoured and privileged to have been given the opportunity to help lead the Humboldt Broncos organization,” Barney said. “I’m looking forward to bringing the knowledge I have learned from various coaches all over the world and sharing it with the players and people in Humboldt.”
Originally from Wynyard, 37-year-old Tyrol “Skip” Deeg said he was happy to be back home and help with the team’s rebuilding process.
The Humboldt Broncos organization is undergoing the difficult task of putting a team back together following a fatal bus crash this spring that claimed 16 lives and left 13 others injured.
The Broncos training camp for the 2018-19 SJHL season begins Aug. 24 at the Elgar Petersen Arena in Humboldt.
