The Barrie Colts are proud to announce that they have re-signed Head Coach Dale Hawerchuk to a new three-year deal.
On June 4th 2010 Dale Hawerchuk was named the fifth head coach in Barrie Colts franchise history. Dale took over the team during a rebuilding year when the Colts went 15-49-2-2. In his last two seasons Hawerchuk has led Barrie to a record of 84-43-5-4 and a top contender in the Eastern Conference.
“To have someone of Dales caliber as head coach has been amazing for the team and for the community,” stated President and Owner Howie Campbell. “To think of where this team has gone from when he took over is truly amazing and our organization couldn’t be happier and more thankful to have such a great coach and person like Dale teach these young players.”
Most recently the Hockey Hall of Famer coached the Barrie Colts within one win away from advancing to the Mastercard Memorial Cup final in Saskatoon. Dale has a playoff record of 22-13 behind the bench and will look to defend the Central Division title and Eastern Conference Championship in the 2013-14 season.
