“…The legacy. The team has always been a competitive team, producing NHL players…”
Hear from newly appointed Spokane Chiefs Head Coach Ryan Smith on what drew him to Spokane, his relationship with Assistant Coach Dustin Donaghy, expectations for the players, and more.
The Winnipeg, Manitoba native has spent the last two seasons with the Chiefs as an Associate Coach before being named the Interim Head Coach in early February, 2022. After taking the reins, the Chiefs went 12-13-1-0 (0.481) from February 11 to April 16, capped by a 5-2-0-0 record in their last seven games and a late push into a WHL Playoffs spot as the seventh seed.
