Pszenyczny works to get Storm ready for second season


Dave Pszenyczny was just trying to play catch up a year ago. 

He had decided less than a month prior to end his playing career to get into coaching and was hired to be the first head coach of the Quad-City Storm in June, tasked with leading an expansion SPHL team that had less than five months to prepare for the season.

Pszenyczny feels more prepared this year as he works to assemble a team that will take the ice in just over four months.

"With anything, you have a little more experience as you go through things," Pszenyczny said. "Last year I was kind of thrown to the wolves and had to figure out things on my own, reach out to other coaches in the league to see what they do but not steal all of their ideas."

With no roster base to work from last year, the Storm's roster was built entirely from scratch and had to be tweaked throughout the season by Pszenyczny, who also serves as the team's director of hockey operations.

Just six players from the opening-day roster were on the season-ending roster, but Pszenyczny thinks he's found a core that he can use to build a more successful team than the one that won just 18 games and finished ninth in the 10-team league.
