The Austin Bruins have announced the addition of Alex Drulia to the Bruins Coaching staff in the role of Assistant Coach. Drulia has been serving as a Regional Scout for the Bruins the past season.
Drulia, 28, joins the Bruins Coaching Staff after spending the 2022-23 season as a Regional Scout for Head Coach Steve Howard. In addition to scouting, Alex served as the Head Coach for the Maine Moose 18U program. Prior to that, Drulia was the Head Coach of the Twin City Thunder USPHL Premier and Assistant Coach of Twin City’s NCDC Programs.
With the addition of Drurila and Thrawl, that rounds out the new Bruins Coach after the departures of both Justin Fisher and Hampus Sjödahl earlier this offseason. Up next for the Bruins, members of the team will return to Austin at the beginning of August for Orientation Camp as the roster for the 2023-24 season begins to take shape. The Season officially begins in Blaine for the annual NAHL Showcase, September 13th-16th with the following weekend, the Bruins hosting the St. Cloud Norsemen on Friday, September 22nd for their Home Opener.
