  When the Southern Professional Hockey League opens the 2016-17 season in October, a new head coach will be behind the bench for the Pensacola Ice Flyers. 

Kevin Hasselberg takes over for Rod Aldoff, who is now coaching the ECHL’s Norfolk Admirals. Hasselberg is a native of Brooks, Alberta and has spent the last five seasons as coach and general manager of the Battlefords North Stars in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

  The Pensacola Ice Flyers’ home opener is set for Friday evening at the Pensacola Bay Center – aka “The Hangar.”

The Ice Flyers dropped the puck on their seventh season last Friday at Peoria, winning 3-1, then losing to the Rivermen 4-0 on Saturday.

“We played very well; the second game we obviously didn’t get the results but the mistakes we made were on us. Those are things that are fixable,” said Head Coach Rod Aldoff, who’s back for a third season behind the bench.

When Head Coach Rod Aldoff brought the team together to begin training camp last week, his message to the ten returning players was: “forget last season.”

Bubba Watson won the 2014 Masters Golf Championship Sunday; his second win at August National in three years. Watson’s first Masters’ win in 2012 was also the first win of a major tournament on the PGA Tour.

He’s now just the seventeenth golfer to win the Masters - and its iconic green jacket - more than once.  Also, he’s just the fourth player in history to earn victories at the tournament in their first six or fewer appearances.
