“To add a key component to our Coaching Staff who brings an extensive playing career and experience working with goaltenders will prove invaluable to our organization. Jesse brings a wealth of knowledge in respect to all aspects of goaltending and we feel fortunate to have him come on board.” says General Manager, Justin Falk.
Deckert played 5 years of WHL hockey for Regina, Tri-City and Prince Albert, and then went on to play 4 years with his hometown U of M Bisons. Deckert also attended two NHL training camps throughout his career. He finished his career with stints in the ECHL and AHL.
Deckert had this to say, “I’m honoured to be a part of the Flyers organization and the community of Winkler. Working with Justin and Riley, who I feel are two of the most passionate, brightest hockey minds in Manitoba was a no-brainer and I can’t wait to get started!”
Deckert, who has been involved with Evolution Hockey since its inception, is also part of the coaching staff for the Team Manitoba U16 Program Of Excellence.
