An announcement that showed up on the B.C. Hockey League’s message board Monday morning turned out to be true.

The Cowichan Valley Capitals have announced the appointment of Bob Beatty as coach and general manager of the team for the 2013-14 season.

Beatty spent the last nine seasons with the LaRonge Ice Wolves of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. The team won back-to-back league championships in 2010 and 2011.

Beatty signed a five-year contract extension with the Ice Wolves in June of 2011, but tendered his resignation Monday. The Ice Wolves missed the playoffs this season for the first time since 2009.

"I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with the rest of the staff, shareholders and stakeholders to build and maintain a team that the community can rally around,'' said Beatty in a statement. "The Cowichan Valley has a reputation of being a great hockey community.

“I am very pleased to be afforded the chance to enjoy living and working in Duncan and can’t wait to get started on a new challenge.''
