As the Wichita Falls Wildcats gear up for the 2014-15 season, new head coach John LaFontaine will look to a group of nine returning players to lead the way, including forward Nick Farmer, who returns for a third season in Wichita Falls.
Farmer posted 12 goals and 14 assists for 26 points in 56 games played last season, one year after notching an 8-9-17 line in his rookie campaign. He played a key role in the Wildcats’ successes last year, with Wichita Falls posting a 14-4-0 record in games in which he had at least one point. The veteran also led all forwards in plus-minus, tallying a plus-9 mark.
The Spokane, Wash.-native reached a personal milestone during the 2013-14 campaign, playing in his 100th game as a Wildcat on Feb. 28 against the Odessa Jackalopes. He was one of eight Wichita Falls skaters to reach that plateau last season.
Farmer, who also spent time in the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL), hopes to continue his hockey career at the collegiate level following his time with the Wildcats.
