    Bluehawks add Loesch

    The NBHL is proud to announce the hiring of former professional defenseman Zach Loesch as the head coach of the Bantam 1 team that will compete in the Northern Illinois Hockey League during the 2018-19 season.

    The 26-year-old White Bear Lake, Minn., native spent the 2016-17 season playing for the SPHL’s Pensacola Ice Flyers and Columbus Cottonmouths — producing 3 goals and 18 assists in 47 games. He also appeared in an American Hockey League preseason game with the Chicago Wolves in 2016.  Prior to turning pro, Loesch played for four years D-1 at Lake Superior State University in the WCHA (2012-16) and earned a Marketing degree with minors in International Business and Sports Marketing. During his college career, he spent time in prospect camps with the Chicago Blackhawks, Winnipeg Jets and Washington Capitals.

    Loesch coached the Bantam 1 team in White Bear Lake last season.  Loesch also has been involved as skills instructor at the USPHL level.  Loesch's addition to the Bluehawks will prove beneficial as the leader of the Bluehawks’ Bantam 1 team in addition to his work with other coaches on skill development.

    Welcome Administrative Director Rob Newburg

    The NBHL would like to welcome Rob Newburg to the organization. Rob comes to us with over 18 years of coaching experience ranging from learn to skate through midgets.  Rob is currently entering his 7th year with the Chicago Wolves as the Youth Hockey Director and also previously worked for the Chicago Steel in the USHL.  Rob grew up playing youth hockey in the Chicagoland area and graduated from DePaul University.   Rob will be coaching a U12 team with the Bluehawks and also will be handling various administrative duties, Wishbone and other club activities.    Please be sure to introduce yourself to Rob this upcoming season.
