SHANE KUSS NAMED TO BCHL’S ALL TIME LIST

Shane Kuss has been named to the 50 top players list in the BCHL and the top 10 in the decade of the 1990’s. Some pretty good company as players such as Scott Gomez (Montreal Canadians), Brendan Morrison ( Calgary Flames), Bill Muckalt ( Minnesota Wild), Willie Mitchell (LA Kings) Paul Karyia (Anaheim Ducks) and Shawn Horcoff( Edmonton Oilers) were also named in the 1990’s.

“To be named in the top 10 players in my decade and top 50 overall is a true honour considering I look at the players that I have been named with. There are some pretty elite players on that list and to have my name beside them is something that I will always remember and cherish. Those years were the best years of my life playing hockey and doing something I love to do and now looking back and realizing who I was playing with and against is pretty amazing. So many of my personal accomplishments were with the help of some of those guys and I hope some of theirs were the result of me helping them.”

It was also another summer of taking time out to visit the Stanley Cup as former student Milan Lucic of the Boston Bruins hosted an event for friends and family to celebrate with. This was the second year in a row that Shane got the opportunity to celebrate the Cup with former players that he had coached as Brent Seabrook (Chicago Blackhawks) hosted an event in the summer of 2010.


“I have had the privilege of not only coaching Brent and Milan but to celebrate the Cup with them was surreal. To see their success and what they have accomplished is what coaching is all about and for them to recognize that you were a small part of what they accomplished is an honour and something to be proud of”.
