Hasselberg fired from Ice Flyers

Former Battlefords North Stars general manager and head coach Kevin Hasselberg is looking for a new job.

The Southern Professional Hockey League’s Pensacola Ice Flyers fired Hasselberg on Monday, which came just a day after the team had completed a three-game weekend sweep at home over the Peoria Rivermen.

The Ice Flyers, who are the defending President’s Cup champions and have won three out of the last four SPHL titles, are currently in seventh in the 10-team league’s standings with a 15-15-16.

Hasselberg was hired by the Ice Flyers in the summer after five seasons as the general manager and head coach for the North Stars.

Rod Aldoff, who had coached the Ice Flyers from 2013 to 2016, was announced as the new bench boss by the team Tuesday.

Aldoff had started the season as the coach of the ECHL’s Norfolk Admirals, but was relived of his duties in late November after just 17 games.
