Nathan Oystrick has dropped as a head coach and general manager of Broncos Humboldt.
Born in Regina, 36, he was hired in July, three months after 16 young hockey players, including former coach Darcy Hogan, were killed in a bus crash.
In a tweet, Oystrick said "Despite the extreme pressure and constant pressure of working with the organization, I gave them all I could, and I am proud of their performance, mine, season."
Oystrick said another statement would come.
The Broncos are fourth in Saskatchewan's Junior Hockey League with a record of 21-13-2-1 season.
Before becoming a coach, Oystrick played 65 NHL games with Atlanta Thrashers, St. Louis Blues and Anaheim Ducks.
Oystrick was one of more than 50 candidates for the Broncos coaching job.
The team's opening team 2018-19 was shown throughout the country in the TSN.
Broncos were selected as the news of the year and the news story of the year in 2018 in the annual survey of the Canadian press.
