The other piece to the puzzle was the head coaching position for the Brookings Blizzard organization.  The position was originally intended to be filled by Doc Delcastillo who led the Alexandria squad over the past 3 seasons with Crouse.

On Tuesday morning is was announced that Delcastillo would be named the Head Coach of Division III powerhouse Hamline University.

“Just as the organization’s goal is to move young men onto the next step of their hockey career, the same goal applies for our coaches and staff,” said Blizzard Owner Chris Canavati, “we are excited for Doc and his family and we wish him nothing but the best.”

Over the past 3 seasons Delcastillo has amassed a regular season record of 103-56-17 with a playoff record of 6-10.
