The Comox Valley Glacier Kings are pleased to announce the hiring of Jeff Dubois as the team’s new Head Coach & General Manager.
Dubois joins the Glacier Kings after spending the past two seasons as the Assistant Coach & Assistant General Manager with the BCHL’s Alberni Valley Bulldogs.
From 2014-2017, Dubois coached the KIJHL’s Creston Valley Thunder Cats and in his final season led the team to a Bronze Medal at the Cyclone Taylor Cup while being named the KIJHL’s Coach of the Year. He also won two league championships in the BCIHL as the Head Coach at Selkirk College in 2012/13 and 2013/14. He was named BCIHL Coach of the Year both those seasons.
“I’m excited to join the Glacier Kings and thankful to Dave and Marsha Webb and Iris Churchill for the opportunity to lead their team,” says Dubois. “I’ve been able to watch the VIJHL closely from my time in Alberni Valley and I know it’s a very competitive league with a great reputation for player advancement. I’m looking forward to getting to know our players and staff and working with them to put a winning product on the ice for our fans.”
“We’d like to thank Jordan for all the time and effort he put into the Glacier Kings organization over his many years as a player and coach,” says team owner’s Dave Webb, Marsha Webb and Iris Churchill. “Ultimately we decided that a coaching change was in the best interests of the team.
Dubois will assume his responsibilities immediately and make his debut behind the bench on Thursday when the Glacier Kings visit the Nanaimo Buccaneers.
