This decision comes in the aftermath of an alleged on-ice altercation with a player during Monday's practice. Chad Leslie, the team's General Manager, made the announcement, expressing concerns over a potential breach of the Western Hockey League Standards of Conduct.
The incident unfolded as Praught engaged in a heated exchange with 17-year-old defenseman Josh Fluker, with video evidence capturing Praught swinging his stick at Fluker. Currently, the WHL Security Network is in the process of reviewing the matter to determine the appropriate course of action.
In light of Praught's suspension, Assistant Coach Taras McEwen will step into the role of head coach.
