Phil Westman has been named the Head Coach of the Huron-Perth Lakers U16 program.
It is with great pleasure that I get to announce Phil Westman to our Laker family as the U-16 Head Coach. Phil brings great experience, knowledge and professionalism to the program. Phil began his coaching career with Milverton Minor Hockey at the age of 21 while playing Senior hockey for the Milverton 4 Wheel Drives. From there he moved on to coaching Jr. C with the Brussels Bulls for two years before returning to coach Senior hockey back in his home town of Milverton for the next 5 years.
Phil's Jr. B coaching career began with the Listowel Cyclones in 1998-1999. He then joined the Stratford Cullitons bench as an Assistant Coach under Denis Flanagan and eventually became Head Coach. Phil was behind the Cullitons bench for approximately 800 games with 2 Sutherland Cups.
Phil has resided in Milverton all his life with Judy and two daughters Taylor and Harley.
Welcome Phil to the Lakers Family!
