July 6, 2016
The Jersey Shore Wildcats of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) are proud to announce Corey Leivermann as the team’s new head coach.
Leivermann, 26, will join Eric Brule behind the bench, who will be acting as Associate Coach and will remain General Manager.
“I'm very excited for this opportunity and to coach with Eric Brule this season. The Wildcats organization has a great set up here for the players and a tradition of excellence,” said Leivermann.
Leivermann played junior hockey in the USHL for the Fargo Force, which later turned into a commitment to play NCAA Division I hockey for Minnesota State University-Mankato. Leivermann finished his NCAA career with Gustavus Adolphus College.
After playing in the NCAA, Leivermann played some professional games in the SPHL with the Mississippi Riverkings during the 2014-15 season. This past season, Leivermann was scouting for the NAHL’s Wichita Falls Wildcats.
“We are very excited to have Corey on board with us this season,” said Wildcats General Manager Eric Brule. “After numerous interviews of potential candidates for the position, we are confident Corey is the right person for the job and was also highly recommended by the coaching staff in Wichita Falls. Corey is a natural leader with a great personality that will fit nicely with the players. With the relationships his has at the junior and collegiate levels, he will be a great asset for the players to have a chance to be promoted in the future. I look forward to have him on our staff and work with him on and off the ice.”
The 2016-17 NA3HL Jersey Shore Wildcats will start their season with their Pre-Camp on August 21st at Jersey Shore Arena.
