Team ‘in very good hands’ with new bench boss

Former Wranglers coach/gm comments on replacement in 100 Mile House

The 100 Mile House Wranglers are “in very good hands” with Dale “Duner” Hladun at the helm, according to former coach/general manager Doug Rogers,

“They could not have picked a better person for the job,” says Rogers, who guided the club to a second-round playoff berth in its inaugural season and is returning to a career with the Prince George RCMP.

“Dale is a great hockey person and is the right person to get the Wranglers to the next level in the organization’s second year. The community and the players are in very good hands with Duner. I have no doubt that the Wranglers will compete for a division title next season.”

Hladun was named new coach/general manager by club president Tom Bachynski on March 28.

Hladun has decades experience coaching and managing at the minor hockey level, Junior A level, and about 10 years in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League with the Princeton Posse, and more recently (the 2013/14 season) with the Fernie Ghostriders.

The new coach complimented the work of his predecessor.

“Doug did an awesome job to start from scratch,” Hladun says. “Being the next guy behind Doug, I’m hitting the ground running.”
