Wild Extends Littler's Contract

Bliss Littler will be around for a long time to come! The Wenatchee Wild announced today that Littler’s contract has been extended 10-years to keep him on as the team’s General Manager.

Owner David White says, “Lisa and I are so proud to have extended our relationship with Bliss for the next 10-years. The success we have achieved as an organization is due to the vision and dedication of Bliss and his team of professionals. His family is very close to our hearts, and we love that they are an important part of the Wild success as well.”

Littler came to Wenatchee as head coach in 2012 and quickly made the Wild a year-after-year contender in the BCHL. His 836-wins has made him the winningest coach in the history of US junior hockey.

Littler says, “We love the people that we are fortunate to come to work with every day in the Wild office, and I look forward to helping Head Coach Chris Clark and staff put together Wild teams that Wenatchee Wild fans can be proud of.”
