ANCHORAGE WOLVERINES

This tag is for the Anchorage Wolverines of the NAHL.

Shane Soderwall backstopped the Rochester Grizzlies to the NA3HL national championship game in 2021. He was on the inaugural Anchorage Wolverines team a year ago that advanced to the NAHL national championship game in their first season as a franchise. This season, Soderwall hopes to be the go-to guy in goal for the Wolverines, who have their sights set on a return trip to the title game.
Hastings native Kyle Bauer acclimated quickly to the North American 3 Hockey League last season as a rookie with the Rochester Grizzlies. The reigning NA3HL Rookie of the Year hopes to do the same while taking a step up this season. Bauer is one of close to 80 players in Rochester this weekend at the main tryout camp for the NAHL's Anchorage Wolverines, coached by Rochester native and former Grizzlies assistant Mike Aikens.
Rochester native Mike Aikens has guided the Anchorage Wolverines to the North American Hockey League's Robertson Cup, the league's final four tournament, in the franchise's first year of existence. He's done it with some names familiar to southeastern Minnesota hockey fans: Albert Lea's Campbell Cichosz, a Minnesota State commit, and former Rochester Grizzlies Collin Pederson (an Owatonna native) and Shane Soderwall.
Mike Aikens helped build the Rochester Grizzlies into one of the best franchises in the North American 3 Hockey League as an assistant coach for three seasons. This year, Aikens took over the first-year NAHL team in Anchorage, Alaska, and he has them just three wins away from a spot in the national championship tournament.
