Solar Bears issue statement regarding Drake Berehowsky

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears have announced that Head Coach Drake Berehowsky will be taking a temporary leave of absence after suffering a medical emergency last night.

“Drake was taken to Florida Hospital where he is receiving medical treatment. I have spoken with Drake and he is in good spirits and eager to get back behind the bench as soon as he receives medical clearance to do so,” Solar Bears Chairman & CEO Joe Haleski said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Drake and his family.”

Assistant Coach John Snowden will take over behind the bench until Berehowsky’s return. The Solar Bears will have no further comment at the present time.
