The Saskatoon Blades will be heading into next season with a new general manager and head coach behind the bench. 

Head coach Dave Struch's contract is not being renewed, while general manager Lorne Molleken will stay on to help guide the team through the transition period before parting ways with the WHL club. The Blades will immediately begin searching for replacements. 

Assistant coach Curtis Leschyshyn will also be leaving the team to help coach the Midget-AAA Saskatoon Blazers.
