Culture At A Crossroads

Episode 10

Meet Scott Barney. The former professional hockey player competed in various hockey leagues all around the world, including the NHL. Upon returning home from his most recent stint playing in Asia, news broke about the devastating bus crash to the Humboldt Broncos.

Like everyone else in Canada, Barney was deeply moved by the fatal collision. The small Saskatchewan town was now on his radar. When an assistant coaching job came up for the Broncos, the seasoned hockey player applied and began his career behind the bench. 

On this episode, Barney will talk about the transition from player to coach. He'll also offer insight of what it's like to coach a junior team under added spotlight 

Plus, he'll share his mentality to help players heal. And, the Bronco never expected to play again who returned to Captain this season's squad. Barney will draw parallels between his recovery and Graysen Cameron's. 


Not to mention, we'll assess the role that faith played and continues to play for this hockey club.
