Astle named Associate Head Coach and Assistant GM

Township of Langley, BC (Thursday, June 4, 2015) – The Langley Rivermen have promoted Kurt Astle, who will become the team’s new Associate Head Coach and Assistant General Manager.

For the past three seasons, Astle has been the Rivermen’s Assistant Coach and Director of Player Personnel.

“I’m excited to move up in the organization,” said Astle. “This is one of best junior hockey programs in the country and I’m happy to be a part of it and help continue its success.”

As a former offensive player, Astle works heavily with the Rivermen forwards and powerplay unit. He was a part of the coaching staff that guided the team to the best regular season record in 2013-14 season, winning the Ron Boileau Memorial Trophy.

“Kurt is an integral part of the Rivermen organization and we know he’ll have a lot to offer in his new role,” said Head Coach and General Manager Bobby Henderson. “He has a good relationship with the players and knows how to bring the best out in each and every one of them.”
