ASSISTANT COACH

Rhett Blackmur

In his fourth year coaching the Broncos, Rhett is familiar with the organization.   He first joined the club in the 2011-2012 season as a player, where he spent his full junior career as a Bronco, winning an SJHL and Anavet Cup Championship in his first season with the team.  Shortly after his playing career, he started coaching in the midget program in Humboldt where he became the head coach before joining the Broncos as an assistant coach.  Rhett never left the community of Humboldt after his playing days;  he still lives and works in Humboldt.

“It would be very hard to find a better place, better community, or better people than in the city of Humboldt to live, call home and to coach hockey.”

ASSISTANT GENERAL MANAGER AND DIRECTOR OF SCOUTING

Luke Strueby

Luke grew up a fan of the Broncos as he was born and raised on a farm by Marysburg, just north of Humboldt.  He attended school in Muenster and played the majority of his minor hockey in Muenster and Humboldt.

Luke then made the jump to junior hockey and played three years with the Broncos.  When his time with the Broncos concluded, he went on to attend Minot State University where he played ACHA Division 1 hockey with the Minot State Beavers and pursued a career in education.  He was named captain the last two years and led his team to the National Championship Tournament in his final year.

Luke then moved home and after a year of teaching, the Broncos hired him as the associate coach and marketing director.  The next year, he stepped down, but stayed on as a scout and was eventually named Head Scout.  After serving as the Head Scout for four years, he was promoted to Assistant General Manager and Director of Scouting at the start of the 2018/2019 season.

Luke has spent nearly 15 years in the Broncos organization in a wide variety of roles.  His experience with the Broncos, and knowledge of the league and Junior A hockey as a whole, continues to play an essential part of the success of the Broncos organization.

Luke currently teaches and resides in Wakaw with his wife Amanda and his two children, Blakely and Rhett.
