The Stallions make a massive addition to their coaching staff, signing former Stallions goalie Alex Hufford as an assistant coach for the upcoming season.
Alex has had many years in the game, starting with playing his youth hockey for the Kalamazoo Optimist Hockey Association, and playing three years of varsity high school hockey for Portage Central High school. After graduation, Alex went to play for the Wisconsin Whalers in the NA3HL before coming back home to play for the Stallions as the starting goalie for four years and a captain his senior year.
He also served on the Stallions executive board as the President for three years. He has served as an assistant coach with the Portage Muskies High School program for the last 3 seasons, and has also been an instructor at Bandits Goaltending School.
“Alex was known around the locker room as the guy; when someone needed something, Huff was that guy,” said President Justin Satawa. “Now transitioning to a coach, I am excited for him now to have the ability to help our team improve on the ice with his ice knowledge, but more importantly as a role model who can teach us how to be better men and people.”
