The Medicine Hat Cubs announced Friday that they have hired Randy Wong to serve as head coach and general manager of the junior B hockey club.
Wong comes to the team with previously established ties after guiding the Medicine Hat Hounds U18 AA squad to a provincial championship in 2019, then sending a significant crop of that team’s players into the Heritage Junior Hockey League with the Cubs.
The Cubs parted ways with co-coaching duo JD Gaetan and Steve Leipert back in April, then released general manager Dave Kowalchuk from his duties earlier this month.
After electing a new board of directors following the club’s Aug. 6 annual general meeting, newly elected president Troy Sandau said the Cubs opted to combine the roles of head coach and GM as a cost-cutting measure.
