Welcome, Gabe Gauthier!

Hello Flyers!  On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce that Foothills Hockey Association has named Gabe Gauthier as the new Director of Hockey at FHA, effective immediately.

The Board of Directors has worked diligently to search and attract candidates that will represent not only culture of the Flyers but also to build on the momentum and take us to the next level as a youth hockey development program. 

Below is a message directly from Gabe:

Parents, Players, and Coaches

I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Gabe Gauthier and I’m originally from Southern California where I played hockey until I received the opportunity to go to Berkshire Academy, a boarding and hockey school, in Massachusetts.  At 15, I went to Canada where I won 2 championships with the Chilliwack Chiefs. 

After developing my skills in Chilliwack, I was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship at the University of Denver.  During my time at DU, the team won back to back NCAA National Championships.  In 2005, I was honored by being voted an All-American.  After DU, I signed with the Los Angeles Kings and spent four years up and down between the Kings and the Manchester Monarchs (AHL). My experiences in the NHL and AHL included 2 championships and a trip to the All-Star game.   My playing career continued with trips to Canada, New York, Germany and ended in Colorado. 

After I elected to retire, I moved into coaching where I took the head coach position at Metropolitan State University (Denver).  MSU achieved the highest placement in school history by earning a bid to the regional finals.  This success led me to Las Vegas where I was named the Director of Hockey, Coach in Chief, Head Coach and GM of the Las Vegas Storm.  During my time in Las Vegas, the Storm grew from 2 teams to 13 teams.  The house league grew from 115 to 250 players and the learn to play hockey program grew from 30 to 120 participants. 

The Storm grew tremendously not only in numbers but also in skill.  Players developed by coaches teaching basics and guiding young players to improve agility, athleticism, and Hockey IQ.  I implemented a coaching model that allowed the players to have fun and develop the age specific skills to be competitive and progress from level to level. 

The Storm are successfully competing against some of the best players on the West Coast. Additionally, we have sent numerous players to the Pacific district development camp while having one of the players move on to the national camp. 

It was a very exciting time with the development of hockey in Vegas. The NHL saw this growth, which aided in the decision to bring the NHL franchise to Vegas. 

I love hockey and I am extremely excited to join Foothills Hockey Association in a position to help educate the players and achieve their highest potential. I believe the parents play a huge role in supporting their players and their organization and that we as coaches are here to drive, encourage, and instill the values for them to succeed. 

I am truly grateful for this opportunity to be part of your team.  

Gabe Gauthier 

 

Gabe, his wife, Tammy, and daughter, Brooke, are extremely excited to be joining the FHA family.  Please say hello to Gabe at the rink or at FHA Movie Day.  He will make his return to Colorado from Thursday, 11/16, through Saturday, 11/19.  He is very excited to meet our parents, players, and coaches.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns.

 

Don Codner

President FHA

FHA's Jake Bunner and Family 

On November 4th Jake Bunner lost his long battle with cancer.  Jake was one of the Flyers biggest fans and could be seen, with a huge smile, cheering on all our teams in the stands and working countless hours at all our home tournaments.  FHA as an association stood with him in support and now we want to help his family during this difficult time.  Jake was an amazing husband and dad and leaves behind a loving wife, Tori and 2 teenage children, Sierra (Colorado Select) and Logan (Midget Minor AA).  Please help us help them heal.
