Nathan Oistrik resigned as head coach and general manager of the Humboldt Broncos.
The 36-year-old Regina native was hired in July, three months after 16 members of the junior hockey team, including former coach Darcy Hogan, died in a car accident.
Oistrik said on his twitter: “Despite the extreme stress and constant pressure of working with the organization, I gave them everything I could and am proud of their results and mine this season.”
Oistrik said another statement would follow.
The Broncos are fourth in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League with a record of 21-13-2-1 this season.
Before becoming a coach, Oistrik played 65 NHL games with the Atlanta Thrashers, St. Louis Blues and Anaheim Dax.
Oistrik was one of more than 50 applicants for coaching in the Broncos.
Rookie season 2018-19 team was shown throughout the country on TSN.
The Broncos were chosen to be the newsmaker of the year and the newsfeed of the year in 2018 in the annual Canadian Press survey.
