2010 Boys Head Coach
Hockey is in Coach Greg Krahn’s blood. The Greenfield, Wis. native fell in love with the game as a two-year-old, when his parents got him up on skates for the first time. That started him on a path toward his first youth hockey experience as a Mini Mite with SHAW [the Southeastern Hockey Association of Wisconsin].
When Greg entered his Peewee Major season, he did so as a member of the Pettit National Selects, the predecessor to the Milwaukee Jr. Admirals [MJA]. He then moved on to play Midget hockey for the Madison Capitols, under Wisconsin hockey great Bob Suter, a member of the legendary 1980 U.S. Olympic “Miracle on Ice” team.
Greg eventually moved on to play collegiately at the Milwaukee School of Engineering [MSOE], earning all-conference honors as a true freshman. When playing at MSOE, he developed a passion for coaching while conducting “Learn to Skate” lessons at the Pettit National Ice Center, giving many future MJA players their first taste of skating. Coach Krahn has been a hockey coach ever since. His coaching career has included working with the Hockey Factory Development Program in Fond du Lac and an eight-year stint with the KMMO high school varsity team that included a trip to the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association [WIAA] tournament in 2014.
Coach Krahn holds a degree in construction management from MSOE and lives in Eagle with his wife Kelly and their five children.
