With a pair of wins this weekend over the Okotoks Oilers and Fort McMurray Oil Barons, Whitecourt Wolverines HC/GM Shawn Martin tied and then became the all time wins leader among Wolverines coaches.
Shawn started his tenure with the Wolverines as an associate coach in 2017-18 before taking the helm in early 2019 with the departure of Gord Thibodeau. Under Shawn Martin the Wolverines have made the playoffs in every single season and last year he was recognized as the AJHL’s Coach of the Year.
Picking up a 3-0 win against Fort McMurray Saturday night, Shawn recorded his 124th win as Head Coach passing Joey Bouchard and setting the Wolverines all-time record.
Wolverines Associate Coach Bryson Traptow had this to say
“I want to congratulate Shawn on this tremendous accomplishment, he has done so much for this team, community and myself.”
Bryson adds “There is nobody more deserving to hold this Wolverines record.”
Shawn Martin says about his accomplishment
“I would like to thank all the tremendous staff, players, fans, billets, sponsors, and everyone else who has helped along the way in making the Whitecourt Wolverines an ideal fit for me and my family. We hope for many more wins and great years in Whitecourt.”
