Curtis Darling didn’t know where he would wind up after the 2009-10 season ended, but unless he got a call from the American Hockey League, it wasn’t going to be in a hockey crease somewhere.
Darling, who played in 57 games last season – the most ever for a Reign goalie – was done chasing the dream.
Darling didn’t have to wait long for his next job.
Greg Puhalski, Darling’s head coach from 2007-09 with the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers, offered his former goaltender one of two assistant coaching positions at Wilfrid Laurier University. The Golden Hawks play in CIS (the Canadian version of the NCAA), where Darling played collegiately for the University of Waterloo.
