Brayden Klimosko played in the SJHL for three seasons, moved into the assistant coach role with the Humboldt Broncos in 2013-2017, and now his dream has become a reality.

Klimosko is the new Head Coach and General Manager for the Battleford North Stars.

"I started coaching about five years ago and I kinda gave me a deadline of really wanting to be a head guy by about 30 otherwise maybe switch and do something else but I'm getting to live my dream. It's pretty exciting."

Klimosko has been apart of the League Championship, Anavet Cup, and the National Championships back in 2008 with the Humboldt Broncos.

"Being able to go to the rink on a daily bases and that's your job your very fortunate I guess you could say, (I'm) very excited about it and looking forward to it." 

Klimosko is excited to move forward but gives his past Head Coaches credit for helping him become the coach he is today.

"I had three really good coaches there, Dean Brockman to start, I had him for a year, and Ryan for another year, and then two for Darcy. Obviously, you saw Darcy the way he was improving every year and all three of them taught me so much about how to coach and manage my own craft and shape what I want to be as a coach. I give them a lot of credit, all three of them were great to work for and I'm looking forward to being on my own now."

The team is losing quite a lot of players this year and last and Klimosko knows that the team will be a process and a rebuild but they will get better every day.

"I really want to focus in on working hard and doing the little things, you're going to see results maybe not in October or November it might take you until March but i'm definitely looking forward to it."
