The Vernal Oilers are pleased to announce that coach Joe Pfleegor has been promoted to the role of General Manager for the club. In this role, Pfleegor will primarily be responsible for player recruitment and corporate sponsorships. Former GM David Imonti will also assume the role of President of Hockey Operations for the Oilers.

As the organization's inaugural head coach, Pfleegor led the club to the CAJHL's championship game. More importantly, Pfleegor was instrumental in helping the club overcome various obstacles during the early WSHL/CAJHL days, assembling a group of players that allowed junior hockey to survive in Vernal. Everyone in the organization is grateful for Pfleegor's commitment to the Oilers, and we are excited to see him thrive in his new position with the club.  

With Pfleegor's promotion, the Oilers will begin a thorough search throughout North America for a qualified coach to lead the club into the USPHL for the inaugrural 2022-23 season. Interested candidates can submit a resume with references to:
