Iron Rangers name Hendrickson assistant coach
HOYT LAKES, Minn. – The Minnesota Iron Rangers of the Superior International Junior Hockey League are excited to announce the hiring of Garrett Hendrickson as assistant coach.
Hendrickson joins the Iron Rangers after graduating from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., in May.
He had 71 points in 100 career games with the Cobbers and served as team captain for the 2016-17 season.
His junior hockey career includes time playing with the Penticton Vees and the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in the BCHL as well as the Coulee Region Chill of the NAHL.
Before playing Jr. Hendrickson played high school hockey in Virginia, Minn., for the Blue Devils.
He is currently the 16th all-time leading point scorer in Minnesota High School Hockey history and was a member of two state high school hockey teams.
According to head coach Chris Howe of the Concordia Cobbers; “Garrett is one of the smartest hockey players I have ever coached.”
Coach Howe believes Garrett will do a great job in his new role with the Iron Rangers and will be able to relate very well with the players.
Hendrickson will be working closely with the forwards on skill development and will be breaking down video with the players to help them learn the game.
He has jumped right in and is helping Minnesota head coach and general manager Todd Kreibich with recruiting.
“Garrett has a good eye for recognizing players that have talent and the ability to be coached; two of the things we are looking for on the recruiting trail,” added Kreibich.
“I really believe he is going to be a great asset to the Iron Rangers organization and I look forward to working closely with him this season.”
The Iron Rangers will be holding a tryout camp for the upcoming season on July 28-29 at the City Arena in Bemidji, Minn.
