Wenatchee Wild President and Managing Partner Bill Stewart announced today that the team has hired Bliss Littler as head coach and director of hockey operations. Littler holds USA Hockey’s Junior A Tier I and Tier II all-time record for career wins (577), and brings 19 years of head coaching and general management experience to the Wild. Littler spent the last 12 years of his career in the USHL, where he served as head coach and general manager for the Omaha Lancers (2008-11), Tri-City Storm (2003-08) and Topeka Scarecrows (2000-03). Littler’s USHL teams compiled a combined record of 326-210-59. In his most recent stint, Littler led the Lancers to a 117-60-22 record. In addition, Omaha led its division in scoring, power play percentage, penalty-kill percentage and allowed the fewest goals over the last three seasons. The third coach in Wild history, Littler replaces John Becanic who resigned as head coach in April.
