Super Bowl Sunday wasn’t so super for Dave MacQueen.
MacQueen was fired Sunday as the general manager and head coach of the OHL’s Sarnia Sting. The Sting (18-26-6) is fourth in the Western Conference’s West Division, 19 points behind the Windsor Spitfires and three ahead of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
Assistant coach Trevor Letowski, a former NHLer, is the new interim head coaches. The general manager’s duties will be split up among front office staff.
According to reports, including from RDS, former NHLer Guy Carbonneau will take over as head coach of the QMJHL’s Chicoutimi Sagueneens today.
Carbonneau, who played and coached in the NHL, is part of Chicoutimi’s ownership group, and serves as president and governor.
The Sagueneens fired head coach Richard Martel last week. Marc-Etienne Hubert has been serving as the interim head coach.
The Sagueneens have won all three games they have played since Martel was released.
