Nick is an alumni of the AJHL while playing 130 regular season games and 38 post-season games with the Brooks Bandits. Nick has also competed in two RBC Cup National Championships. He then went on to play four years of NCAA Division I hockey for Robert Morris University. Prkusic graduated with a degree in Business Finance and finished with 81 points in 128 games in the NCAA. After that Nick chose to get right into coaching and has been working for Prairie Academy of the CSSHL as a Head Coach of the U17 team.
Kodiaks Head Coach Clayton Jardine says, “Nick was very detailed and determined in the whole process. It was great to go through the process with Nick and I am excited to have Nick join the team. Nick’s playing experience, character and leadership (was captain in Jr and in the NCAA) speaks for itself and at the end of the day the decision was easy and it will be a great fit.”
Nick stated, “I am extremely honoured and humbled to have the opportunity to join the Camrose Kodiaks as an Assistant Coach. This is a great opportunity for me to contribute to a top-class junior program and I look forward to helping these young men develop and realize their goals.
