The men behind the bench of the Humboldt Broncos are here to stay.
The Broncos have agreed to extensions with both Head Coach and GM, Scott Barney, and Assistant Coach, Curtis Toneff.
Barney, who was promoted to Head Coach midway through the 2018/19 season has agreed to a three-year extension. Meanwhile, Toneff, who joined the team prior to the 2019/20 season has singed on for a one-year deal.
“Our organization is very proud to announce the extensions of both Scott and Curtis with the Humboldt Broncos,” said Broncos President, Andre Kruger. “We’re very proud of the work they have done in elevating our program, recruiting players, and putting together a very competitive team every year they’ve been here. We feel for the future development of our organization and the continued success of the on-ice product for our fans, it was important to extend both Scott and Curtis into the future.”
Since being promoted into the head coaching role, Barney has amassed a 70-36-10 record, marking one of the top winning percentages in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League over the past few years.
“I can’t say enough good things about the Humboldt Broncos organization and I’m very happy that both myself and Curt were able to work out a deal that keeps us here in Humboldt in pursuit of a championship,” said Barney. I feel it’s important to have continuity with all our staff in the organization to continue to grow as a team. Also, my family always comes first, and they love it here in Humboldt. The community has been so welcoming to us as a family, so it was an easy decision to continue to call Humboldt home.”
The Broncos have been off to a flying start to the 2021/22 season, currently tied for first place in the league with a 23-8-0-0 record.
