SJHL's Terriers re-sign Cassan

The RBC Cup Junior A hockey champion Yorkton Terriers have locked up Westmanite Trent Cassan for at least two more years.

The 31-year-old Medora native and Southwest Midget AAA Cougars graduate has signed a two-year contract extension with a third-year option to remain as head coach of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League club, while also taking on the role of general manager as well. The Terriers also announced that former GM Don Chesney will move to director of marketing.

“It was something where I had been associate general manager for the last couple of years as well, so I guess probably from the hockey operations part, probably not a lot of change there but a bit more responsibility in the public eye and a little bit more off-ice stuff,” Cassan said Monday via telephone.

“I played in Yorkton and have been on the staff for a number of years and it’s somewhere I really enjoy and we have been lucky to have a pretty consistent staff ... so there is a lot of familiarity there.”

This past season, Cassan guided the Terriers to a league-leading 37-12-2-5 record and to the SJHL championship, the Western Canada Cup title in Dauphin and to Yorkton’s first RBC Cup in Vernon, B.C.

He has served as head coach of the Terriers for the past five seasons after taking over midway through the 2009-10 season and is coming off back-to-back league championships.

“In junior hockey, everything goes in cycles, some strong years and some rebuilding years and some inbetween years, and we have been fortunate in my time there with our staff to be competitive and that’s our expectation every year is to be competitive but also to develop the players and maintain a good core group of guys coming back every year,” Cassan said.

“It’s a really good board (of directors) to work for, the players are treated well, it’s a great community, we get very good fan support, community support and recruiting players to come there, we have been very success to draw players from all across Western Canada ... so it’s a good situation.”

Cassan gets back at it next week when the Terriers open training camp on Aug. 29.
