Terriers Hire Assistant Coach

The Portage Terriers have added to their coaching staff by hiring Robby Moar as an assistant coach.

“We look forward to having Robby bring his commitment, work ethic and knowledge to our staff,” says Terrier Head Coach and GM Blake Spiller. “Robby has experience playing in our league (2011-14) and was a respected assistant coach in Neepawa. Robby will look after video and skills, as well as assisting in the day-to-day coaching of our team.”

“My plan is to compliment Blake and Paul any way that I can. They are two of the best coaches to ever coach in the league and anything I can do to make their job easier I’m willing to do,” says Moar.

Moar was called up for one game by the Terriers during the 2010-11 season. He then spent six games in Swan Valley before playing 138 games over three seasons in Neepawa. The Portage product produced 70 points during his MJHL career. Moar went on to play four seasons at Minot State University (ACHA), becoming an assistant captain his senior year.

The Neepawa Natives hired moar as an assistant coach from 2019-21. “I feel like I gained so much experience in Neepawa. Ken Pearson gave me so much opportunity to grow as a person and a coach. I am comfortable with whatever comes my way, and I can’t wait to contribute to an already successful hockey team.”

“It’s hard not to be excited about competing for a Centennial Cup and thinking back to when it was here last time. The part that excites me most is to work with the staff in Portage. I’ve been so fortunate to learn from Dustin Howden and Ken Pearson in Neepawa and now to work with Blake Spiller and Paul Harland, I’m just extremely lucky.”

Welcome to the staff Robby!
