Kolten Moore: Assistant Coach

After 4 ½ years of wearing the red, white and black of the Heat “Moorsey” moved upstairs into an Assistant Coach role.  Everyone in the KIJHL knew him for being a pest.  He continues to care and be persistent in his time behind the bench.

Rick Iglesias (aka Julio): Trainer

“Julio” is the day to day magic man that tends to the wounded.  Annually the guy the players admire the most, for his attention to detail, his commitment to the team and all it’s parts.  The avid sportsman when he isn’t at the rink or on the road can be found wherever there are tee boxes and greens.  His insight to the game is invaluable and his role goes well beyond his titled role.  If you really want to know what’s happening just ask this guy!
