Dwayne Kirkup will return to coach the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Neepawa Natives next season.
The organization announced yesterday that the Souris native will stay in Neepawa for his second year behind their bench. The team went 14-41-5 last season and missed the playoffs, but Kirkup remains optimistic about helping rebuild the team.
“The community and organization made it clear they wanted me to return and I am excited for the opportunity that has been presented,” he said in a news release. “The entire community is behind this team and it’s exciting to be part of it.”
