The Arizona Bobcats are proud to be apart of the NAPHL again for upcoming 2016-17 season, and excited for the first puck drop in Blaine this September.  Last year, the 18U team failed to qualify for the playoffs, while the 16U team finished in 10th and did qualify for the post-season. Arizona will also have a team in the new 15U Division this season. Both teams saw a coaching shuffle, Pat Mahan and Brent Gough will be behind the bench for both teams, Mahan U 16 Head Coach and Gough the U 18 Head Coach, Bobcats also added Ed Lisogar to the round out the coaching staff.  This season the 16's see a large turn over and only have 1 returning player from last season. 18's see some new faces added to the roster this year mixed in with some veteran players of the NAPHL.
