Coachman Returns for His 4th Season
By David Paige
The busy month continues for Watertown.
Exactly one week after the announcement of Ryan Marker's return, the Watertown Wolves are proud to welcome back Justin Coachman for his 4th consecutive season! Justin is looking forward to another solid year with the Watertown Wolves as he chases his second FPHL Championship title.
Coachman stated, “When I got the call from the new owner [Andreas Johansson] and Coach [Brent Clarke] that I was being re-signed for another season, I had already told everyone that I want to play here in Watertown. This is home and I don’t want to wear any other jersey.” Coachman then went on to say, "I love this team and this city, and these fans deserve another championship. I have won one before in 2017-2018, but I was signed to the team in March of that season and now I want to play a full season and win a championship which is the ultimate goal.”
Watertown Wolves Head Coach Brent Clarke had nothing but praises for Coachman, saying, “Coachman is a solid player and a good team leader. He is a veteran player and I`m really looking for him to take care of the team and the locker room.” Coachman got promoted to Alternate Captain mid-season and the Wolves are really looking for him to continue that role and responsibility.
Coachman has been with the Wolves for his entire FPHL career. He has played in 105 games scoring 2 goals and 18 assists. Many know Justin as a player who is not afraid to drop the gloves if he needs to. He will be a tremendous asset to the team as the Watertown Wolves attempt to capture their 3rd Commissioners Cup.
Coachman stated to the Watertown Fans “Hope to have you all come out this season and support us! I love the fans and this team. Let’s go win another championship. Let`s get it done.”
