The Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts have a new head coach.
Shane Lukinchuk of British Columbia will be taking over the top job from Brian Casey for the 2012/13 season.
The Cats made the announcement yesterday evening after their annual golf fundraiser.
Lukinchuk has an extensive background in hockey, from playing at the university level in the United States, to coaching AAA teams in BC. He recently moved to the region with his wife, who is an RCMP member and is also originally from Newfoundland and Labrador.
Cataracts President Bryan Blackmore said Lukinchuck is looking forward to working with a team with such a supportive fan base.
He said the Cataracts are extremely pleased to welcome Lukinchuk to the organization and the community.
