The Grand Forks Border Bruins will have a new head coach and director of hockey operations for the upcoming 2018-19 KIJHL hockey season.

The Bruins Board of Directors is pleased to announce that John Clewlow from Brampton, Ont. will replace Emery Olauson to guide the Bruins behind the bench. After three seasons in Grand Forks, Olauson has accepted the position of head coach and general manager of the St. Stephen, New Brunswick Aces of the Junior A Maritime Hockey League.

The Bruins and their fans are extremely grateful for the contribution that Emery and wife Lauren have made during there three years in Grand Forks. The team made the playoffs in each year of his leadership, after 19 consecutive seasons of not experiencing the post season. They really loved our community and will be missed.

As it turns out the incoming bench boss and outgoing coach and general manager have close connections. In 2014-15, the season before the Border Bruins hired Olauson as their new coach, Olauson was coaching the Fayetteville FireAntz of the Southern Professional Hockey League.

The St. Stephen Aces have named Canmore, Alberta native Emery Olauson the team’s new Head Coach and General Manager.

Olauson is a former professional player with several years of junior hockey coaching and recruiting experience.

“Emery has played and coached at a high level and he really understands the junior game,” said Aces President John Hyslop.

He said Olauson is committed to the team’s performance on and off the ice and understands the value of a team to the community and he has experience with player recruitment as well as coaching and managing.

“I’m excited for this opportunity with the Aces,” Olauson said. “My family was looking for an opportunity to move to the Maritimes and we look forward to being long-term members of the St. Stephen community.”

Olauson comes to the Aces after spending three seasons as Head Coach/General Manager with the Grand Forks Border Bruins of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. He was the KIJHL Coach of the Year in 2016.

Clewlow was a fan favorite in Fayetteville. Good luck to him.
