The Aberdeen Wings, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce Scott Langer has rejoined the organization as General Manager & President of Hockey Operations.
Langer returns after spending six seasons on the bench as Head Coach & General Manager of the Wings. He most recently was the Head Coach of the Fargo Force in the United States Hockey League (USHL). Langer joins head coach Steve Jennings and assistant coach Zach Stepan on the Hockey Operations staff.
“I’m very happy to have Scott coming on in this capacity,” Jennings said. “We have always had a very constructive, collaborative relationship and I look forward to continuing that.”
Over his 25-year hockey career, Langer has amassed a number of awards and records, including NAHL GM of the Year (’09-10, ’20-21) and NAHL Coach of the Year (’10-11, ’20-21). He also led the Wings to a Robertson Cup National Championship (’18-19), and a Presidents Cup Championship (’20-21). He was selected as head coach of Team NAHL in the Junior Club World Cup (2019) and helped the Wings earn Organization of the Year honors in ’20-21.
In addition to being the NAHL’s all-time winningest head coach with 637 wins, he’s also helped over 290 junior hockey players reach collegiate hockey ranks.
“I am very happy to be able to announce the return of Scott Langer,” Wings owner Greg Odde said. “He brings many years of experience in all aspects of junior hockey back to the Wings. Scott has played a large role in building our championship culture, and I look forward to us continuing to build on that.”
“I’m excited to come home to the Wings organization and help continue to build this franchise,” Langer said. “After 25 years on the bench, I’m ready to meet the challenge of this next level. Anyone who knows me knows how important family is to me, and returning to Aberdeen feels like coming home. A lot of programs preach “family” but the Wings bring it to life. My wife, Tiffany, and I couldn’t be happier to rejoin the Odde family and the Jennings family as I take this next evolutionary step in my career.”
The Wings will kick off the 2022-23 Regular Season Wednesday September 14th in Blaine, MN at the NAHL Showcase. Season tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available. Email Aaron at firstname.lastname@example.org or Megan at email@example.com. For the full schedule visit AberdeenWings.com.
