It was a week of upheaval for the Manitoba U18 AAA Hockey League’s Parkland Rangers.

The club fired head coach Arnie Caplan and assistant coach Dylan Storey on Tuesday and named Tyler Carefoot as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season. Jerron Kyle will be the assistant coach.

Rangers manager Uwe Jansen said the decision was made by the team’s board of directors, but he would not go into the reasons for the firings.

“It was a board decision. The overall direction of the team over the last month or so, the board wasn’t all that happy with it. So it made the tough decision. And it was a tough decision. I can’t sugarcoat it. It was a very, very tough decision,” he said.

Carefoot, a former Ranger, believes in the program and feels it fills a need in the Parkland.

“It gives the kids an opportunity, our elite kids, the players that want to play at higher levels of hockey,” he said.
