The Sioux City Musketeers have announced Luke Strand as the 11th head coach in franchise history. Strand rejoins the Musketeers organization after spending last season as an amateur scout with the Calgary Flames.
“I just want to thank the ownership for giving me this opportunity," Strand said. "I look forward to helping the Musketeers from the front office to the hockey side, that’s what I really look forward to doing.”
“I would really like to thank Brad Treliving and the Flames organization for letting me work on the scouting and management side of things at the NHL level,” Strand added. “I think all those experiences helped me on both sides. The amount of hockey I was able to view helped me learn more than ever, we are really going to be on top of guys’ details now and I have observed different management structures and how they operate best. It’s a small nuance I get to bring back to the organization.”
