Joe Young has been released as head coach and general manager of the St. Paul Canadiens.

Young coached the Canadiens for seven years, and was hired in 2012 after a 3-28 regular season.

The move comes with multiple changes on the board as

“I just really enjoyed working with the board that we had in place here, big thanks to them and Ted Graling, Lisa and John Davies, the small board that we had, and to the assistant coaches I had when coming here.

“We started off with me and one guy by the name of Jamie Sadlowski, and we were able to build it where we had a couple more assistant coaches, come on board. Then we started getting into the player recruitment a little bit better. So overall, it was just a great experience. I have no complaints whatsoever. I’m actually really proud of what we accomplished here.

“I hope that the town was proud of the team and and it’s time to move on. And I’m quite content with that,” said Young.

President Lisa Davies is no longer with the St. Paul Canadiens also.
