Tier 1 Elite Hockey League and the Colorado Thunderbirds congratulate the Thunderbirds’ Executive Director Angelo Ricci on his new job as a NHL Skills Coach.

Ricci was recently hired by the Philadelphia Flyers as a Skills Coach to help players improve in various areas.

“When you have practices, you want to maximize your time on the ice and work on your skills,” said Flyers’ left winger James van Riemsdyk. The Flyers’ players have good things to say about Angelo and his skills coaching with descriptions like “infectious enthusiasm,” “upbeat, positive guy,” and “making sure everyone is feeling confident.”

The Colorado Thunderbirds are proud to have Ricci as an asset as their Executive Director and Coach, and look forward to watching his hockey legacy continue.
