The new expansion team, Total Athletic Seahawks, in the Eastern Hockey League has announced there first Head Coach/General Manager for their inaugural season in 2017-18. They have made a great decision in hiring Bill Zaniboni. Zaniboni was not only a great hockey player but he also had an insane amount of success in his junior hockey coaching career. Previously coaching the Dells Ducks in the MNJHL and then moving to the USPHL. During his 5 year coaching career with the Dells Ducks, Zaniboni collected a lot of hardware including 3 consecutive "Coach of the Year" awards, 2 championship titles, and 2 appearances in the National Championship Tournament. Zaniboni has an ample amount of awards to back up his title of "excellence", but his highest accomplishment is the number of players he commits to college hockey. He has a track record of committing, on average, 16 players per season to higher levels of play. With all that being said it is obvious that the TA Seahawks have made a great decision in hiring Bill Zaniboni. With his outstanding career, playing and coaching, he has proved himself to be an amazing coach who develops great hockey players. I am looking forward to see how the Total Athletics Seahawks will do in the Eastern Hockey League during their inaugural season.
