Jason Farnsworth Returns as Head Coach for the 2023-2024 Season

The Huntsville Jr C Otters are happy to announce that Jason Farnsworth will be returning to the bench as the Head Coach for the 2023-2024 season. He brings with him his passion for the game, his players and his community.
Jason has a long history as both a coach and a player in the Huntsville minor and junior hockey community where he has experienced numerous accomplishments, successes and highlights in both roles.
Last season marked Jason’s first year back to the junior community in several years. His unique coaching style brought some exciting hockey to the ice with a relatively young team, many of whom Jason had either previously coached or coached against at the local minor hockey level.
With a solid core of vets returning along with some new additions this season, we are excited to get back to the rink and enjoy some hometown hockey led by Jason and his team.
Welcome back Farmer!!!
