The Summerland Steam Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to announce another addition to our Coaching Staff for the 2023/24 KIJHL season. Former Captain Everett Scherger has rejoined the organization and will serve in the position of Assistant Coach for the upcoming season! He will stand alongside new Head Coach & GM Morten Kjolby as well as Scherger’s former coach John DePourcq behind the Summerland Steam bench in 2023/24 as the team looks to make the transition to Junior A and solidify it’s 11th consecutive Teck Cup Playoff appearance in the KIJHL.
Scherger, 25, is no stranger to the KIJHL and the Summerland Steam, spending three seasons and over 100 KIJHL games with the Steam from 2016-2019. He served as the team’s Captain during the 2018/19 KIJHL season, playing with an edge and providing a leadership ability that could never be denied. In his 104 regular season and playoff games, Scherger collected 31 goals and 75 total points to go along with 263 penalty minutes, helping the Steam to playoff appearances in all three of his seasons in a Steam uniform.
Scherger, along with the rest of the newly formed Steam coaching staff will be on the ice this weekend when Main Camp gets underway on Friday night at the Summerland Arena.
