The Portage Terriers' iconic bench boss will be sticking around until 2025. Head coach and general manager Blake Spiller has agreed to a three-year contract extension to stay with the organization.

Spiller has been a part of the Terriers' coaching staff for over two decades and will be entering his 17th season as the head coach in 2022-23. 

The three-time Canadian Junior Hockey League Coach of the Year award winner will be looking to capture his second Centennial Cup trophy this season as the Terriers have a guaranteed birth in the tournament, being the host team. The last time Spiller led the Dogs to a Centennial Cup championship was in 2015, which is the last one to take place in Portage.

The Terrier legend is third in all-time in regular-season wins with 604 (Don Stokes is first with 670) and is second in total playoff wins with 110 (25 behind Stokes). Spiller is an eight-time Turnbull Cup Champion and will be looking for his ninth in the 2022-23 campaign. 

Spiller says the vast majority of the coaching staff will also return next season.
