1-on-1 With New Saints Coach, Derochie To OC

The Selkirk College Saints (BCIHL) announced last week they've hired Jeff Dubois as the club's new head coach. Dubois joins Selkirk from the SFU Clan, where he spent six seasons as general manager helping the team to three BCIHL titles (2008, 2010 and 2011).

I chatted with Dubois late last week about his vision for building the Saints into a perennial contender, listen to that conversation here.

The Saints also announced this morning they've received a commitment from Creston Valley Thunder Cats captain Scott Swiston for the 2012-13 season. Swiston put up 61 points in the 2011-12 season. His commitment marks the sixth new face signed by the Saints over the course of this off-season, including PIJHL scoring champ Thomas Hardy.

Hawks Captain Commits: Way late on this one (at least here), but big congrats to Beaver Valley captain Chris Derochie on his commitment to BCIHL Okanagan College last week. Derochie led BV in scoring with 101 points in '11-12 (his third season with the club), and joins a Coyotes squad that included former Nitehawks Layne Stopanski, Patrik Martin and Kris Davis as well as ex-Leaf Miles Houston and ex-Rebel Corey Bulach last season. Way to go Chris!
