FREDDY MEYER has a new position: head coach.

The Sanbornville native will not be returning to the Manchester Monarchs, however. An assistant coach with the Monarchs for the past two seasons, Meyer will take on the head position with the East Coast Wizards, a new junior hockey team in the Eastern Hockey League.

Meyer, who lives in Winchester, Mass., said the opportunity to lead his own program and to be closer to home with the Wizards in Bedford, Mass., were major factors. Meyer has a wife and two children and had been driving approximately 100 miles roundtrip to Manchester.
