Winkler alum Nick Fuher steps behind the bench

Press Release

The Winkler Flyers will have another familiar face behind the bench this season as former Flyer defenseman Nick Fuher has been hired as an Assistant Coach.  Fuher will join Ken Pearson (Head Coach) and fellow Assistant Coach Ernie Sutherland as the teams coaches.

Fuher played one season in Winkler during the 1998-1999 season before moving on to the Lincoln Stars (USHL) the following year.  The Grand Forks, North Dakota native then went on to play four years for the North Dakota Fighting Sioux (NCAA Div I). Fuher played three games with the Utah Grizzlies of the American Hockey League before his pro career was shortened due to injury.

He began his coaching career with the Lincoln Stars in the 2007-2008 season as an assistant. Fuher will replace Steve Mullin who stepped down in order to spend more time with his family.

With the Flyers, Fuher recorded 10 goals and 45 assists for 55 points, received All-Rookie team and second team All-Star honors, was the runner-up for Rookie of the Year and Defenseman of the Year.

The Flyers would like to welcome Nick back into the Flyers Organization and would like to thank Steve and his family for their commitment to the club over the past year.
