GLEN
PATTERSON

Head Coach

The USPHL Premier Elmira Jr. Enforcers have announced that Glen Patterson will be the team’s next head coach. Patterson was part of the coaching staff which guided the Jr. Enforcers to the number 1 seed in the Mid Atlantic as they advanced all the way to the USPHL Premier National Championship last season.

“I have seen and felt as a player how much the Elmira fans and community support local hockey,” Patterson said. “They embraced the Jr. Enforcers even though Covid forced us to play nearly our entire season on the road. I love playing here and I am thrilled by the opportunity to coach here.”

“I guarantee our fans one thing: We will play an exciting 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 is the captain of the Enforcers and has 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 season,” 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 coming season. We can’t wait to get started.”
The Jr. Enforcers will drop the puck on the 2021-22 USPHL Premier season this coming fall at First Arena. Watch www.jrenforcers.com for more information.

Nick
Pagliacci

Director of Scouting/
Assistant Coach

The USPHL Elmira Jr. Enforcers have announced that Nick Pagliacci will be the team’s Director of Scouting/Assistant Coach. Pagliacci comes to Elmira after serving as assistant coach in the 2020-21 season for the USPHL Buffalo Thunder.

“While I am grateful for the coaching opportunity I had in Buffalo, I am extremely excited to be working with Glen Patterson in Elmira,” Pagliacci said. “We’re going to build on what the Jr. Enforcers accomplished last season and develop a team that the fans and the city of Elmira will be proud of. I can’t wait to start the upcoming season with this organization.”

Pagliacci also coached for the Buffalo Regals of the Greater Ontario Hockey League in the 2019-2020 season. Before beginning his coaching career, Pagliacci played hockey for Lindenwood University.

“Nick’s passion for teaching hockey and helping players take their game to a higher level is clear,” observed Jr. Enforcers President Tim Kolpien. “He will be a valuable addition to support Coach Patterson and our players, and we are thrilled to welcome him to Elmira.”

Sebastien
Caron

Goaltending Coach

Goaltending Coach Sebastien Caron is returning for a second season with the Elmira Jr. Enforcers. Caron’s work was invaluable as Elmira’s netminders routinely put up strong numbers and garnered league recognition.

Caron had a successful NHL career with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He also reached the pinnacle of junior hockey when he backstopped the Rimouski Oceanic of the QMJHL to the Memorial Cup title in 2000.

“I am thrilled to be back working with the Jr. Enforcers,” said Caron. “We had a great run to Nationals last season and the bar is set at that high level again for 2021-2022. I cant wait to get started.”

“We are very fortunate to have Sebastien’s help again,” said Head Coach Glen Patterson. “He was a hug part of our success last season and his guidance puts our goaltenders in a position to get us a win in every game.”

Colby
Smith

Broadcaster/
Media Relations Director

The Elmira Junior Enforcers, proud member of the USPHL Premier Division, have named Colby Smith as the team’s new broadcaster/media relations director. Smith has worked with a variety of different sports organizations in his young career, most recently as the ABA Binghamton Bulldogs play-by-play broadcaster/media relations coordinator. He has also completed a media relations internship for the FPHL Elmira Enforcers.

“Colby comes to us with a very wide background of sports experience – especially for a high school student,” observed Junior Enforcers President Tim Kolpien. “His game calling talent, whether for baseball, basketball or hockey is very impressive and I know those watching our games on HockeyTV will be entertained and informed.”


“My dream is to call the biggest goals, hardest hits, and coolest saves at the highest level of hockey,” Smith said. “I am grateful for the opportunity the Junior Enforcers are giving me to continue chasing that goal. The Junior Enforcers are already a top team in an extremely competitive USPHL Premier League which features up and coming players from all over the world. I can’t wait to get started!”

Smith will be calling games this season on HockeyTV, handling all team media relations duties, and introducing many exciting new things to the organization and fanbase.
