“We are very pleased that Bill Bowler has accepted the position with us and look forward to a very exciting season," says Vipers Hockey Club President John Savage. “Bill has tremendous experience and a proven track record of success both on the ice and behind the bench.
"With the depth of our current roster and some very exciting prospects already being recruited, combined with Bill Bowler's coaching, we will have a very competitive team this coming season."
Bowler says he is looking forward to working with the Vipers Club.
"Building on the success the club had last year, delivering a great product this coming year will be my focus. This is not about building a new team, this is about taking the club to the next level."
Bowler played professional hockey for nearly a decade in the NHL, IHL and AHL. He still holds the record in the OHL for most career assists and the Windsor Spitfires record for most points in a career. Bowler has coached at many levels including Junior A OHL and Junior B hockey.
Coach Donally Steps Down
Vipers Head Coach Ryan Donally has stepped down to focus on his education. LaSalle general manager Tom Kirby is also leaving the Vipers after one season.
Donally, guided LaSalle to a third-place finish in the Western Conference in his first season.
"We had a great year and I know the guys really enjoyed it and the coaching staff enjoyed it. There weren't many bad days."
Donally is finishing up his business degree at the University of Windsor and is set to begin work on his master's degree and said that was the reason for moving on.
Donally is hoping to one day coach at the CIS or NCAA level and said to do that it's imperative he completes his master's degree for that to happen.
