Premier Head Coach

Glen Patterson returns for his third season with the Junior Enforcers organization. He will serve as Hockey Director/Premier Head Coach. Glen will oversee both our teams as well as lead player development and player advancement to college hockey and higher-level junior hockey. “I have seen and felt as a player how much the Elmira fans and community support local hockey,” Patterson said. “I love playing here and I am thrilled by the opportunity to coach here.” “I guarantee our fans one thing: We will play anexciting brand of hockey bringing one hundred percent effort on every shift every night,” Patterson continued. “With our fan support, a first-class facility in First Arena, and the player amenities we offer, we can build on the success of last season.” A native of Cobden, Ontario, Patterson played more than 250 professional games during a six-year playing career in the United States, Sweden, and New Zealand. “Glen played a big role in what we achieved in our first two seasons advancing 19 players beyond Tier 3 junior hockey,” noted Jr. Enforcers President Tim Kolpien. “He and his staff will take our program and our players to even greater heights both on and off the ice in the 2022-23 season.”
