The Okanagan Rockets and BC Hockey are proud to announce that veteran coach David Whistle will be returning behind the Rockets bench to work alongside new head coach Simon Furgeson.
Whistle began the 2013-2014 season with the Rockets, and then coach Mack O'Rourke.
A professional opportunity led Whistle to England and forced him to step aside mid-season.
After the club was sold during the off-season, having Whistle return to help Ferguson was a natural choice.
"We had some great candidates step up for the assistant coach position, but at the end of the day, having the chance to bring someone of Dave's caliber back to our program was just too good of a chance to pass up" said Rockets general manager David Michaud. "Dave will be a great mentor for Simon and will no doubt be a big help as Simon transitions from his playing career to his 1st stop as a head coach."
The Rockets will open their Annual Evaluation Camp on August 7th at the Capital News Centre.
