The PG Cougars goaltender coach, Taylor Dakers, now has more responsibility with the WHL team.

The 35-year-old Dakers, who has been with the team for the last four years, has been named the Cougars Director of Business.

Hockey Canada released a plan Monday to combat the “toxic” culture in its sport.

The plan includes the implementation by the end of September of a centralized tracking and reporting system for abuse complaints.

It said the results will be published annually to “hold Hockey Canada accountable.”

The organization will publish an annual social responsibility report, which will include information on complaints received at both the national team and sub-national levels and a scorecard based on “key performance indicators.”

Hockey Canada said it was in the process of identifying the measures to be included in the scorecard. Hockey Canada also says it will implement enhanced screening for high-performance players — “considering their behavior and track record outside of their time with Hockey Canada and outside of the rink.”

It will mandate that breaching the organization’s code of conduct or refusing to participate in an investigation could result in a lifetime ban.
