Coach Cullen earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education from Bemidji State University and began his career as the head coach for five years at Hamline University.
The Midget AAA 18U team that will be competing in the NAPHL is second only to their Prep Team. They also have a 16U team and a Midget AA team. Head Coach Pat Cullen states, “We are very excited to be joining the NAPHL and to have a chance to compete against very good competition. We know that we will have to be on top of our game at every event. We will rely heavily on our returnees: Peter White, Kyle Cote, Sam Shrout, Jake Vaughan, Brent Schuldhaus, Christian Brune, Owen Arfstrom and Preston Kostlan.”
