KELOWNA, B.C. – The WHL Kelowna Rockets are losing their leader, a man considered to be one of the top coaches in the Canadian Hockey League (CHL).

Ryan Huska has been announced as the head coach of the Calgary Flames’ American Hockey League team, the Adirondack Flames.

Huska has spent seven seasons as head coach of the Kelowna Rockets, joining the team as assistant coach in 2002.

“I’m thrilled for him and I think this is long overdue,” said Rockets President/GM Bruce Hamilton. “This is an opportunity Ryan has deserved for many years. He’s done a wonderful job for us and we will be his biggest fans.”

The Kelowna Rockets are holding a press conference at 1 P.M. Monday to talk about Huska’s move.
