WINNIPEG, MB– Hockey Manitoba and Saskatchewan Hockey Association have announced a coaching change for Team West participating in the 2014 World U-17 Hockey Challenge held December 28th – January 5th, 2014 in Cape Breton, NS.
Malcolm Cameron who was originally appointed as Head Coach of Team West back in May was also recently promoted to Head Coach of the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League (WHL).

He is a former Memorial Cup champion after winning the title with the Swift Current Broncos in 1989.
