Recently, the Delisle Chiefs of the Prairie Junior Hockey League (PJHL) announced who their General Manager will be for the 2018-19 season. 

Ryan Marushak from Rosetown will be returning for his 7th season with the team and his 4th season as General Manager of the club. 

Marushak gave his reaction to the news. 

"Just happy, got some unfinished business that we want to take care of so it's very nice to get re-done up for another year so we can get moving forward," Marushak said." We got so far last year, losing out in the finals. I think we have a team that we put together that we would like to get there again and hopefully win the league." 

Marushak joined the Chiefs as an Assistant Coach and Director of Player Personnel in 2008-09, the Inaugural Season of the franchise in Delisle. He served in that role for 2 years before being named the Head Coach and General Manager of the West Central Rage for the 2012-13 season. 

He then returned to the Chiefs Organization for the 2014-15 season as the Assistant General Manager before being named the General Manager of the Chiefs prior to the 2015-16 season.

He talked about what's changed over the years.

"Every year in junior hockey is a different team," Marushak said. "the biggest things with us is having character guys that get along and I just feel that over the year's we've had good leaders that have passed the traditions of hard work and grit onto the younger guys." 

He said the team's been keeping in shape over the summer with some scheduled practices and will get back on the ice the weekend of September 14th, 15th and 16th for their training camp. 

The team's home opener is scheduled for October 6th.
