Not only is Matt Edlin returning as the president of the Las Vegas Jr Wranglers, he going back to the bench too. Matt, who won a few Best Administrator awards on Vegas Hockey, will be coaching a Bantam A team. Ken Quinney, whose son Gage is one of the best young skaters in town, will coach the top Jr Wranglers bantam team.
Edlin was working nights and not available the last two years. The work hours changed to the good and he was recently asked if he wanted to return as president.
“Didn’t think twice about it – I said yes right away. The Jr Wranglers have a wonderful organization and I want to help us grow in all areas, get even more players and for me personally, yes I wanted to coach again. All of this is exciting.”
