the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL have swiftly suspended head coach Devan Praught indefinitely following an alleged on-ice altercation with a player during Monday's practice. The team's General Manager, Chad Leslie, made the announcement, expressing concerns about a potential breach of the Western Hockey League Standards of Conduct.

The incident reportedly unfolded as Praught engaged in a heated exchange with 17-year-old defenseman Josh Fluker, culminating in a noteworthy moment captured on video where Praught swung his stick at Fluker. Currently, the WHL Security Network is carefully reviewing the details of the altercation.
Amidst this development, Assistant Coach Taras McEwen will assume the role of head coach during Praught's suspension. This marks the second instance this season where a WHL coach faces suspension for violating the Code of Conduct, underscoring the league's unwavering commitment to upholding high standards of behavior.
The WHL is actively investigating the incident, refraining from providing additional comments at this juncture.
