WILDCATS ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE HIRING OF GENERAL MANAGER AND HEAD COACH
Hinton Wildcats President, Axel Axmann, is pleased to announce that the club has signed former professional hockey player Geoff Walker to be the team’s first General Manager and Head Coach.
Geoff hails from Charlottetown, PEI and will be making the trek across country to take the reins of the Wildcats team.
“Geoff had the opportunity to travel to Europe to continue to play at a highly competitive professional level but opted instead to make the transition into the General Manager/Head Coach role. Signing Geoff was an important goal for us as he has experience as a player/coach and is well equipped to take on a managerial role. We’re very excited that he will be part of the Wildcats franchise and inaugural season!” Axmann said.
Walkers professional career includes 300 American Hockey League (AHL) games, 200 East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) games as well as time in Europe (Germany/England/Italy). He has also coached a number of elite hockey teams. Geoff’s Junior career was with the Summerside Western Capitals and major junior with Gatineau Olympique and PEI Rocket.
Welcome to the Wildcats, Geoff! Looking forward to seeing you here!
