The Wenatchee Wild is a Tier II Junior A ice hockey team in the North American Hockey League's West Division. The team plays its home games at the 4,300-seat Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee, Washington. The team joined the NAHL as an expansion team for the 2008-09 season, and are well known for their rivalry with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs.

History[edit]

On September 12, 2006, ground was broken on a new multipurpose event center that would be home to a new ice hockey team. On February 22, 2008, the NAHL granted Wenatchee Junior Hockey, LLC. with conditional approval for an expansion team. On May 20, 2008, Wenatchee Junior Hockey, LLC. announced the franchise would be the "Wild." The name was chosen by a "name-the-team contest" held at local schools in Wenatchee and East Wenatchee. Other potential names for the team were the Wranglers, Bombers, Wonders, Hockeyes, Winning Walruses and Ice Busters. The Wild played their first game on September 17, 2008, losing to the Motor City Metal Jackets 2-1 in overtime. The Wild made a championship run in that first season, winning the division title but losing the championship game 3-2 in overtime. The following season, they came back and won the West Division championship in 2009-10, but were eliminated in the round-robin championship tournament. On June 18, 2010, the Wild announced a new secondary logo.

On May 13, 2013, the Wild lost their final game in the NAHL during the Robertson Cup Championship Tournament to the Amarillo Bulls 5-0 during the Robertson Cup championship game. The team was resurrected when the Fresno Monsters re-located to Wenatchee.

Move to BCHL[edit]

On January 19, 2013, USA Hockey approved the transfer of the Wenatchee Wild from the NAHL to the British Columbia Hockey League for the 2013-14 season.[1]

TEAM ANNOUNCES MOVE TO TEXAS'

On May 14, 2013, the Wild announced their move to Hidalgo, Texas as the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees.

Fresno Monsters to move to Wenatchee'

On May 22, 2013, the Wenatchee City Council approves a deal to move the Fresno Monsters to Wenatchee and keep their name and logo.

Cowbells[edit]

The team has created an identity for themselves by using cowbells. Similar to the Tampa Bay Rays of the MLB and the Sacramento Kings of the NBA, the Wild have fans ring cowbells in support of the team. After a Wenatchee goal, fans will ring their bells in support. Since 2008, the Wild have hosted a cowbell giveaway, where the first 2,000 fans through the door get a free cowbell. Many fans also bring their own bells to games.

Slogans[edit]

The Wenatchee Wild have used a slogan each year following the inaugural season.

2009-2010: Our team, our time, our house!

2010-2011: Unfinished Business

2011-2012: The Wolfpack is Back

2012-2013: Stronger

Robertson Cup[edit]

The Wenatchee Wild hosted the 2010 NAHL Pepsi Robertson Cup.

Head Coaches[edit]

On November 24, 2010, the Wenatchee Wild fired Paul Baxter, their inauagural head coach. It is unspecified exactly what led to the firing of Baxter, who led the Wenatchee Wild to back-to-back West Division titles in 2008 and 2009 and an amazing finish of making it to the Robertson Cup Finals in The Wild's first year. Baxter was replaced in December 2010 by John Becanic. On April 27, 2012, shortly after elimination from the 2012 West Division Playoffs, Coach Becanic resigned. USHL coach Bliss Littler was announced as the new Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations on May 23, 2012. Mr. Littler currently holds the record as the winningest coach in USA Hockey history (Jr. Tier 1 and 2). Littler was released from his duties as the Omaha Lancers USHL Head coach mid season 2011/12.
