July 3, 2022
Former Saskatoon Blades player Wacey Rabbit has been named an assistant coach for the Saskatoon Blades.
“I’m really excited,” he said. “There’s just so many emotions going through my head.”
Rabbit was planning on returning to coach a British Columbia Junior Hockey League team in Alberni Valley.
“If any other team in the league or any other team in hockey really, asked me to do this I probably wouldn’t have left. The Blades was something really special,” Rabbit said.
Rabbit spent four seasons with the Blades from 2002-06 before winning the 2007 Memorial Cup with the Vancouver Giants. He was born in Lethbridge and is a member of the Kainai First Nation. His hope is to help give back to the Saskatoon Indigenous population.
