GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Wednesday, the Adirondack Thunder ECHL hockey team announced that it would be moving on from its work with Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Alex Loh. Loh has served with the team at Cool Insuring Arena since 2016, first starting as an assistant coach.
“We want to thank Alex for his commitment to the organization and his efforts. Alex has been a key piece of this team since its inception and has played a significant role in all our successes. We also want to thank our fans for their support, patience, and enthusiasm during this past season and we will begin the process of finding a new Head Coach immediately,” said the ECHL in a statement on Wednesday.
Loh first began work with the Adirondack Thunder in 2015. He served as an assistant coach during the 2015-16 season, and was named Head Coach starting ahead of the 2018-19 season.

In the 2021-22 season, the Adirondack Thunder finished the season 27-40-4-0, not earning a playoff spot.
