"Staying up with the way game of hockey is evolving and gathering knowledge in the game of hockey is something I take a great deal of pride in, spending a lot of time on video, and individual skill development as whole."
Curt is a bright, young coaching mind who has already accumulated a great deal of success in a short period of time.
As a player, the Nanaimo, BC native played Major Midget before playing with the Oceanside Generals in the VIJHL before moving on to play in the BCHL with West Kelowna Warriors, and Trail Smoke Eaters. Toneff also played in Winkler (MJHL) and Battlefords (SJHL).
Instead of continuing his playing career in college, Curt quickly realized he had a passion for coaching.
Toneff returned home to start his coaching career in the VIJHL in 2014 and helped guide the team to a VIJHL Championship, Cyclone Taylor Cup, and Western Canadian title. He was hired then by the BCHLs Trail Smoke Eaters and served as the Assistant Coach and Assistant GM for 2 Seasons. Home came calling for Curt for Two Seasons where he guided the VIJHLs Nanaimo Buccaneers for 2 Seasons, receiving the Coach of the Year award in his first season, and moved over 15 players to Junior A, WHL or College in those 2 Seasons. Prior to the 2019-20 Season Curt joined the SJHLs Humboldt Broncos as an Assistant Coach where he currently coaches.
Curt is the newest addition to Hockey Horizons, where he will work with players, assisting them to achieve their goals of moving to the next level. Curt also spends a part of his off season training junior and pro hockey players in group and individual settings.
