The ‘Stash is Back! Tye Scherger Extends His Contract

The Melfort Mustangs Jr A Hockey Club is proud to announce the signing of assistant Coach Tye Scherger to a two-year renewal deal. Scherger came onto the Mustangs Bench for the 2023-24 season after the previous assistant coach retired. Scherger brought a young and fresh perspective to the bench focusing on the forward lines.

Scherger, a Macklin Saskatchewan product is very familiar with the community of Melfort, playing a total of 56 games with the Mustangs and finishing his Junior hockey career with the Mustangs in 2021. He totaled 21 points and 130 Penalty Minutes in his two seasons. Scherger also spent a season with the Olds Grizzlys in the AJHL before joining the Mustangs.

When asked about the extension Head Coach Trevor Blevins had nothing but good things to say about his bench partner in crime: “Tye has been an integral piece of our success in his first year as assistant coach. His energy has been contagious in our dressing room and his knowledge is appreciated. He has been a pleasure to work with and we are excited for the work and effort he will bring now and in the future for the Mustang organization.” 

Scherger explains how much the community and the team means to him and how he feels about returning: “I am thrilled to be extending my contract with the Club. This organization has shown me care and my family care since I was a player and I am ecstatic to spend two more years with this world-class organization. I am excited to continue working with the staff and board of directors. I also look forward to continuing my work with Trevor, he is a great mentor and veteran coach to learn from and look up to. Not only am I enthusiastic for what is to come of our playoff run this season but also what is to come in my future seasons with the Mustangs.” 

Scherger has experience behind the bench coaching the U18 Sask First tournament in Regina this year and looks forward to more coaching opportunities in the future with the Sask First Program. But for now his focus is on the Canterra Seeds Cup.
