Chiefs' Don Nachbaur named Team WHL head coach for Subway Super Series

CALGARY - Spokane Chiefs head coach Don Nachbaur will be behind the bench for Team WHL at the 2012 Subway Super Series.

Nachbaur's assistants for the Nov. 14 game in Vancouver will be Edmonton Oil Kings head coach Derek Laxdal, and longtime Vancouver Giants head coach Don Hay.

Victoria Royals' Dave Lowry will join the coaching staff as an assistant for the Nov. 15 game in Victoria.

The Subway Super Series features regional teams of CHL all-stars competing against the Russian national junior team in a six-game event. The series is part of the identification process for Team Canada prior to the IIHF world junior championship.

The OHL hosts the middle leg of the six-game series with the first two games hosted by the QMJHL, and the final two games played in the WHL.

Last season the CHL prevailed with their eighth series win in nine years.

Nachbaur, a native of Kitimat, B.C., is in his third season as the head coach of the Chiefs and his 15th season as a head coach in the WHL.

Quote of the Day

I think you always have to look internally before you look externally to see, 'Do we have these players within our organization?' And I think we do.
