Shocking news out of Humboldt Friday morning as the coach of the Broncos is stepping down.
Nathan Oystrick went to Twitter to say he is stepping away and that he gave them everything he could and is proud of their performance and his.
I have stepped away from the Humboldt Broncos. Despite the extreme stress and constant pressure of working with the organization, I gave them everything I possibly could and am proud of their performance, and mine, this season.
I will issue a proper statement shortly.

The reason for the decision isn’t exactly known with Oystrick saying he will be issuing a statement soon.
The Broncos, who as you know had to rebuild their team after last April’s bus crash that killed 16 and injured another 13, have one of the best records in theSaskatchewan Junior Hockey League and are in a three-way fight with Kindersley and the Battlefords for first place in their division.
Hours after the announcement, the Broncos announced current assistant Scott Barney would serve as Oystrick’s replacement for the remainder of the season.
