Clouston: He has a problem!

- May 15th, 2012

Cory Clouston has been sent packing by the Brandon Wheat Kings.
After signing a two-year deal with the Western Hockey League club last season, the former Senators coach was fired Tuesday by GM Kelly McCrimmon. Clouston was fired by the Senators at the end of last season.
“I have given a great deal of thought to our coaching situation for the upcoming season,” said McCrimmon in a statement posted on the club’s website.
“I do not want uncertainty with this and as a result have decided we will not have Cory return. He will perhaps have opportunities to coach professionally, failing that, we will honor the second year of his contract.”
The club went 39-28-1-4 last season, but was knocked out in the second round of the WHL playoffs by the eventual league champion Edmonton Oil Kings.
