It’s not even the start of the 2010-11 WCSHL season and already there are many rumours about what’s going to happen in the upcoming hockey season.
The most major news/rumours are centred around the recent and ongoing audits being conducted by Revenue Canada. There are major implications for players and organizations this upcoming season which may lead to players seeking ice time elsewhere other than the WCSHL.
Newfoundland Hockey Talk has to wonder if the tax man is going to take some of the key players from the league this year. There’s definitely something happening behind the scenes.
Just a mere few weeks after the Newfoundland and Labrador big game licenses are issued, the Clarenville Caribous find themselves hunting, but this time it’s for a new head coach.
As previously stated here on Newfoundland Hockey Talk about Coach Pearcey leaving the Caribous organization, I guess the many Caribous fans, executive members and supporters who have denied these persistent rumours are now silenced. In a devastating blow to the Caribous organization, both Coach Pearcey and leading scorer Andrew Pearcey announced they are headed to Mount Pearl for the upcoming hockey season, leaving the team that has brought them back-to-back Herder Memorial Trophies.
Sources have indicated that differences arising after the Allan Cup in the spring. Coach Pearcey and star goalie Jason Churchill had words during the tournament, words that have contributed to this split. Differences in the dressing room between players have apparently also added to the rift that sees star player Andrew Pearcey leaving to follow his father to the AESHL.
Who will the Caribous appoint as their new head coach? Time will tell.
