The Humboldt Broncos are happy to announce the hiring of new Assistant Coach, Carter Hansen, for the remainder of the 2021/22 season.
Hansen will take over Curtis Toneff’s duties who recently departed, accepting the Head Coaching role with the BNCHL’s Merritt Centennials.
Hansen brings a wealth of playing experience to the Humboldt Broncos organization. The 26-year-old from Craven, SK suited up for 251 WHL games between the Moose Jaw Warriors and Regina Pats over the course of four seasons where he played both forward and defense.
In addition to his time in the WHL, Hansen spent the first half of the 2015/16 season with the SJHL’s Melville Millionaires before being traded to the Melfort Mustangs where he would end up winning the SJHL Championship.
“We are really excited to have Carter on board. Obviously, he has a great playing resume in the Western Hockey League. In addition, we wanted to bring in someone with a winning culture into the organization and Carter fits that mold.”
Following his Junior hockey career, Hansen took part in two seasons with the University of Regina Cougars. He recently started his coaching tenure working with the Regina Capitals of the Prairie Junior Hockey League.
“The excitement level is through the roof,” said Hansen. “I couldn’t ask for a better place to come. The team is looking really good through the first half of the year and I’m hoping to help keep that rolling moving forward. I’ve heard nothing but the best about the Humboldt Broncos and Scott Barney. It’s all been very positive and I’m looking forward to experiencing that.”
The Broncos would like to welcome Carter and his family to the organization and community.
