Erie Panthers


A name change in Erie hockey brought with it renewed excitement.  Coach Ron Hansis was at the helm from 1988-1995, guiding the Panthers to the playoffs in each of their first five seasons.  Barry Smith, a future NHL assistant coach, would man the bench during the 1995-96 season.  The following year Erie would change direction and submit a team into the OHL, where they have been ever since.
