The Sault Thunderbirds will finish the year with internal coaching from Zolton Kovacs and Soo Thunderbirds alumni, after the team’s coach and assistant coach–Preston Mizzi and Jamie Henderson–have been suspended. The suspensions stem from coaching staff’s allowing alcohol on the team bus ride home from North Bay after winning the Division championship, which was not brought to Thunderbirds’ ownership attention until April 1st. And, after the trip home after the T-Birds won the Dudley Hewitt Cup, the same incident happened again. The Thunderbirds ownership stated today they support the NOJHL Commissioners’ decision in suspending Preston Mizzi and Jamie Henderson for Conduct that is prejudicial to the NOJHL, and for conduct Detrimental to the interest of the NOJHL.
