The Wichita Falls Wildcats have completed their coaching staff for the 2010-2011 North American Hockey League season with the additions of Brian Huebel and Sean Fish to the coaching staff. Huebel will serve as associate head coach while Fish is the assistant coach and minor hockey consultant. The two were on the coaching staff of the Alaska Avalanche for the past two seasons. Last season with Huebel as head coach and Fish as assistant, the Avalanche finished third in the NAHL West Division with a 32-22-4 record. The pair were assistant coaches under Dave Boitz in 2009-10.
Prior to joining the Avalanche, Brian Huebel was active with teams in Wisconsin, serving as general manager and assistant coach of the Wisconsin Mustangs of the Minnesota Junior Hockey League. He also was the assistant coach of Beaver Dam High School's varsity hockey program. Huebel is a graduate of Wisconsin's Marian University where he was a defenseman for the Sabres.
Sean Fish played in the NAHL for two seasons as a member of the Minnesota (now Alexandria) Blizzard. As a forward, he finished second on the Blizzard in scoring in 2004-05 with 13 goals and 23 assists. After his junior hockey career, he played at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he was captain of the team as both a junior and senior.
In other Wildcats news, 2010-11 team captain Steven Hoshaw has committed to play NCAA Division 1 hockey with the American International College Yellow Jackets. A defenseman, Steven is the second Wildcat from this past season's team to commit to a Division 1 school (the other is Wade Bennett, who will be playing for the Denver University Pioneers). In 91 career games with the Wildcats, Hoshaw scored 3 goals and added 18 assists for 21 points. Five of his assists came on the power play and one came shorthanded. Hoshaw is the second former Wildcat to play for the Yellow Jackets: goaltender Dan Ramirez played for AIC from 2007-2010.
