McAllister Joins Kings Bench as Assistant Coach

The Komoka Kings are pleased to announce that the team has hired Brian McAllister to serve as an assistant coach on the club’s 2024-2025 coaching staff.


McAllister’s most recent coaching experience came as the Head Coach of the London Nationals, where he took over midseason in 2023-2024. Under McAllister’s guidance, the Nationals posted a 19-3-1-1 record, and reached game seven of the Western Conference Finals. 


McAllister has had a lengthy career around the hockey landscape, as a longtime coach in the London Junior Knights organization, an assistant coach for the Lucan Irish Six (PJHL) for two seasons, and 17 years as a skills development specialist. Brian also scouts for the Brooks Bandits of the BCHL and is a part of the Mental Game Academy. 


Kings President and GM Roop Chanderdat looks forward to Brian joining the staff, saying: “Brian McAllister is a great addition to our coaching staff. He brings experience, passion and an ability to teach our players which are the qualities we were looking for in an assistant coach to work with Head Coach Rumun Ndur. ”


McAllister is equally excited for the opportunity with the Kings, stating: “I am thrilled to join the Komoka Kings Junior Hockey Club and eagerly anticipate contributing to the team’s success. Becoming a part of the Kings is an exciting opportunity to continue my passion for coaching and to foster a culture of excellence both on and off the ice.”


Brian’s son, Ryan, is a member of the Florida Panthers organization, and a former Komoka King. In his season with the Kings, he scored 4 goals and added 14 assists for 18 points in 16 games. He had eight points in 12 playoff games in the 2018-19 season, and was a driving force in the Kings’ trip to the conference semifinals. 


The Komoka Kings look forward to a strong 2024-2025 campaign.
