For the second time in two years the Battleford North Stars will start the season with a new man at the helm as Nate Bedford has resigned his position as coach and general manager with the club to move back to Alberta.
Bedford has been hired to take over the head coaching duties of the Portage College Voyageurs of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) and will reside in Cold Lake, Alberta.
“I was shocked,” said Troy Slywkas, President of the North Stars. “I knew they (Voyageurs) had reached out to him. The last I had talked to him everything was good.”
