According to the Lethbridge Herald, Lukowich "walked out" on the team after a game last Wednesday. He was not present for games or practices in the ensuing weekend and was fired yesterday.
"It’s been going on for a couple of weeks, of course you know Brad left the team last week and I’ve been dealing with it, speaking with him and we’ve decided this is the course of action,” Hurricanes general manager Brad Robson told the Herald. “For Brad’s future and for the Hurricanes’ future.
“Brad’s goal is still to be a coach, to eventually become a head coach and he’ll continue to work toward that just not with the Lethbridge Hurricanes.”
The Hurricanes are currently tied for last place in the WHL at 11-41-2-3.
I spoke with Colton Sceviour this morning for an unrelated story and asked him about the situation in Lethbridge.
Sceviour said, "It's unfortunate, but it sort of shows the situation the team is in right now on and off the ice. It's a great place to play with unreal fans. Hopefully something can change to get them back to where they were."
