The Lethbridge Hurricanes announced Tuesday the hiring of Peter Anholt as their new Assistant General Manager.
Anholt started his coaching career as an assistant with the Prince Albert Raiders before taking his turn as a head coach. For more than a decade Anholt was a head coach in the Western Hockey League with the Raiders, Red Deer Rebels, Kelowna Rockets and Seattle Thunderbirds. For the past three seasons, he’s also been scouting with the Thunderbirds.
Hurricanes General Manager, Brad Robson is excited to have Anholt join the hockey club. “With his vast experience behind the bench and his knowledge of the WHL, he is a valuable addition to our team. Plus, the work and direction he has helped take Seattle with his scouting experience is an added benefit to our hockey club.”
Anholt is also thrilled with the opportunity to join the Hurricanes. “I’ve always been one of those guys that likes challenges and we have the makings to move forward and I’m looking forward to it.” Anholt also believes that his biggest asset is that he knows how to build a team. “I think I have a pretty good feel for good people and I think I have a good eye for hockey talent and hockey sense.”
