Canucks Hire Krog

He would join BWC Academy for three seasons at the U15 and U15 Prep level, working in both the head coach and assistant coach role. This past season, while still with BWC Academy, he would join Simon Fraser University of the BCIHL as a Hockey Advisor.

Krog replaces former CSSHL coach Yogi Svejkovsky, who was promoted by the Canucks to an Assistant Coach role last week.
