August 6th, 2021, Nashville, TN- TPH Nashville and the Nashville Jr. Predators are proud to announce the hiring of Karlis Zirnis as the Head of Hockey for the Nashville Center of Excellence (CoE). Zirnis will also serve as the Head Coach of the Jr. Predators 18U AAA team. As the Head of Hockey, Zirnis will oversee the application of TPH’s on and off-ice Hockey-Athlete Development Model, mentor student-athletes, and execute all training and practice plans.

 

“We are thrilled to welcome Karlis back to the TPH family,” TPH CEO Nathan Bowen said. “Karlis is passionate, connected within the hockey world, and has invaluable experience coaching at the levels our student-athletes are striving to get to. Our families in Nashville should be comforted by the fact that hockey is being led by an individual who knows what it takes for players to reach the next level. Karlis’ resume alone proves that.”

 

In mentioning “resume,” Bowen is referencing Zirnis’ vast and diverse experience coaching hockey players at all levels. A native of Riga, Latvia, Zirnis is no stranger to TPH, having previously served as a coach in the Thunder ‘AAA’ program following his retirement from the professional game in 2010. Since his first stint with TPH, Zirnis has enjoyed coaching stops at both the junior, collegiate, and international levels. He has captured a Robertson Cup Championship as Head Coach of the NAHL’s Shreveport Mudbugs, has spent the past three seasons as an Assistant Coach at the NCAA Division I level, first with the University of Alaska and then at his alma mater, the University of Alabama-Huntsville, and has coached with the Latvian Hockey Federation since 2014. Zirnis recently accepted a position as Director of Player Personnel for the NAHL’s Amarillo Wranglers, a role he will occupy while leading hockey for TPH in Nashville.  

 

Zirnis says he desires to take all of his experiences and work alongside what he calls a “dedicated staff” in TPH-Nashville to positively impact the lives of student-athletes.

 

“For me, it’s great to return to Nashville, a place I have called home for close to a decade, and be back with TPH, showing hockey players how to reach their potential,” Zirnis said. “My goal is to lead hockey programs for TPH that put skill development first and build off the unbelievable foundation Steve Jennings has laid with the 18U team. Winning will be defined by our ability to teach all of our student-athletes about what it takes to be a successful hockey player and person, and by the doors, we can help open for our kids at the next level. I can’t wait to get after it.”      

 

Zirnis and TPH Chief Operating Officer Francis Anzalone are presently overseas leading the Latvian Under 20 program through its August Development Camp. He will take the hockey reigns of TPH-Nashville and the 18U Predators when he returns to the U.S. later this month.

TPH Nashville and the Nashville Jr. Predators are proud to announce that Steve Jennings has accepted the position as Head Coach and Manager of Hockey Operations for the Aberdeen Wings, in the North American Hockey League (NAHL). Currently, Jennings is Head of Operations for TPH Nashville Center of Excellence (CoE), Head of Boys Tier I Hockey for the Nashville Jr. Predators, as well as the Head Coach and General Manager of the Nashville Jr. Predators 18U AAA team. 

 

“We are so happy for Steve and his whole family as he moves up to the NAHL to lead the Aberdeen Wings. After an incredible, record-setting season as the Head Coach of the 18U Jr. Predators that saw the most player commitments to junior hockey in the history of the program, it’s not a surprise this opportunity came this way,” said TPH CEO Nathan Bowen. “We are so grateful for Steve’s positive impact in Nashville as a coach, mentor, and positive role model to hundreds of players and staff over his long tenure with the club. This will further grow the TPH network, and we know Steve will continue to help players advance with this move.”

 

Jennings will be taking over for long-time coach Scott Langer, who will be exiting and announced his new position as Head Coach with the Fargo Force, a member of the United States Hockey League. (USHL). The two coaches are not strangers, Jennings has served as the Director of Player Personnel for the past five seasons with the Aberdeen Wings and worked directly with Langer since the 2004-2005 hockey season. During the 2016-2017 season with the Wings, he was influential and helped in capturing the NAHL’s Central Division Championship, as well as reaching the Robertson Cup final four. In this capacity, he has worked with the coaching staff and has helped build a long-standing winning tradition, while helping players pursue their hockey and life goals.

 

This advancement comes as no surprise, given Jennings countless achievements throughout his career with both the Nashville CoE and the Jr. Predators. He has done it all, from being responsible for programming and operations of the academy-style environment, to overseeing the application of TPH’s on and off-ice Hockey-Athlete Development Model, mentoring student-athletes, and executing all training and practice plans.

 

“I am very grateful for my time with TPH and the Nashville Jr. Predators. The last couple of seasons have been tremendous, and very rewarding,” said Steve Jennings. “From winning back-to-back Southeastern District Championships, this year’s Tier 1 Elite League Championship, an appearance at nationals, and all the player placements in junior hockey, we’ve all had success, and it’s been an honor.” “TPH has blessed me with the opportunity to work alongside some great coaches and people, and I am very appreciative of the work we’ve done to make Nashville a hockey destination for players and families.” 

 

Prior to his time at TPH, Steve grew up in the Boston area and played in college at the US Naval Academy, where he captained his team to the National Tournament in his senior year. In 1991, after graduation, he began coaching at his Alma mater, and the rest has been history. Jennings has coached club hockey at Lehigh University, as well as multiple youth hockey programs throughout the United States. His coaching styles have brought skills and victories to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Texas, and Georgia, where he relocated to coach in the Jr. Predators program. Since the mid-2000’s he has been a Tier II Junior ‘A’ level scout, and served as the Director of Player Personnel for the Santa Fe RoadRunners and the Topeka RoadRunners of the NAHL.

New Event Provided an Opportunity Amidst Challenging Circumstances


In a world where many people think about themselves, selflessness is a quality that can be less common and a characteristic that can be overlooked. However, being a selfless, passionate, and generous individual teaches us how to identify and connect with others in our community. It helps us act from our heart, instead of our ego, and that in and of itself is rewarding and what TPH Center of Excellences (CoE) teaches student-athletes who Study, Train, Play at the hybrid learning academy model. In fact, the proof is in the pudding, as three TPH CoE alumni student-athletes have gone the extra step in their selflessness journey and established an event alongside FloHockey, a non-profit located in Erie, PA in helping junior hockey players after a nonexistent season. 

 

The CoE trio includes Andy Perrott, from the Owen Sound Attack, Ryan Humphrey, from the Hamilton Bulldogs, and Ryan Beck from the Saginaw Spirit. As well as Brendan Hoffman, from the Erie Otters, who would be later added to the group. 

 

“The fact that we have three alumni entrepreneurs doing all they can for teammates, competitors, and other players from additional leagues, is incredible and we are so proud of them. What they are doing is so selfless and innovative, these are part of the character-building TPH has been all about since day one,” expressed TPH CEO, Nathan Bowen. 

 

After countless junior hockey players saw their seasons crumble and come to a halt due to COVID-19, Perrot decided it was time that someone shared a player’s perspective and give insight into how many athletes were feeling. On February 24th, 2021 he did just that and wrote to the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) expressing his emotions on the current return to play, as well as beginning an online petition for players wanting to get back to the ice. 

 

“Speaking to all my teammates in the league this year I knew how important it was to everyone to have some sort of season and that is why I wrote the letter and then the momentum kept going from there.,” explained Perrott. 

 

From that letter it sparked something special, bringing the four gentlemen together. Soon after conversations began, the group vowed if they couldn’t have a traditional season they would make one. Now the event they created is hosting its first junior showcase for the 2021 season, which is dubbed “FloHockey PBHH Invitational.”

 

“Once Andy (Perrott) came up with the idea, we all started talking and decided why don’t we just try something,” Beck said. We eventually were on the phone every day talking to sponsors, scouts, and a bunch of players and before we knew it, we had 6 full teams and people reaching out to us to see how they could help or volunteer. 

 

The tournament, which was organized by the junior hockey players, highlights talent from across the United States Hockey League (USHL), North American Hockey League (NAHL), OHL, and other leagues that are independently run and operated at the ERIEBANK Sports Park in Pennsylvania. The event will support and permit junior hockey players who have been impacted, by the unforeseen circumstances, and difficulties in lost games, seasons, and training due to COVID-19, to showcase their talents. Additionally, the event aims to enrich the Erie community and focus on expanding and cultivating the hockey community through a larger lens.

 

“The biggest thing for us is that we wanted to do something for the players that lost a year and a half of playing time. If one person comes out of this with an unbelievable experience and takes his career to the next level, we did our job. But also, because we get to give back to the community here in Erie and possibly the charities of our choice,” noted Humphrey. 

 

The team hopes the event will  allow junior hockey players the opportunity to show the attributes of their training and hard work over a long offseason to over 70 NHL scouts. Additionally, they hope to support the community, health, or sports culture in Erie, by dedicating all proceeds from the event, further emphasizing the impact that these three alumni entrepreneurs are making for the sport they love most. The former CoE student-athletes secured funding by raising money from sponsors and securing  donations through various charitable individuals and associations. TPH is proud to support this unique event, alongside both Hobie and Maynards, by providing $7,500.00 in cash for player meals. Through strategic partnerships, TPH has also provided 110 hats and cinch sacs, as welcome swag bags for all athletes. 

 

“I made unbelievable connections because of my experience at TPH and learned how to be a better hockey player and a good kid,” Humphrey shared. I give a lot of credit to them because it not only was a school for me but taught me to value others, to step up for my community and gave me a sense of purpose outside of hockey. I have to thank them for who I have become today.” 

 

TPH would like to congratulate these gentlemen for providing a successful event for hockey players in the Erie community as well as players from across the country. We are proud of their accomplishments and the inspiration they have given to our current CoE students, coaches, and families. In the end, TPH strives to instill in our student-athletes that to succeed to their fullest potential as individuals, they must learn to help others to truly help themselves; through the game of hockey or in the game of life. 

 

“I would not be where I am today without the guidance that was given to me at the Center of Excellence in Detroit. I learned that hockey was important but being a kind person mattered more and that has always stuck with me. I wanted to do something special for players that love the game just as much as I do, and it’s been one of the most rewarding, exhilarating and incredible opportunities for all of us,” Perrott reflected. 

 

When asked the questions many players are eager to hear regarding a second PBHH Invitational the group reflected on the possibility, but noted there would have to be a discussion between the four. For now the group would like to concentrate on the inaugural event for the players, work with their staff, incredible volunteers, and focus on the game they love most.  

 

TPH would like to wish our draft eligible alumni, and all draft eligible attendees of the PBHH Invitational, the best of luck in the upcoming NHL draft.
