Born into the hockey world, Shane Hicke is now the Reno Ice Raiders head coach


A locker room full of tall, sweaty men and coaches is where Shane Hicke spent his days as a little boy.

Hockey has surrounded Hicke for his whole life. Ernie Hicke, Shane’s dad, was a professional hockey player and Shane was his right-hand man throughout his career. From a young age, Shane Hicke was able to observe how coaches and general managers ran their teams and decided “that’s all I wanted to do.”

As a child, Hicke was moving around a lot and compared his youth to being like one of an army kids.
