HistoryEdit

The Monsters were announced in Spring 2009, filling a void for hockey in Fresno after the Fresno Falcons folded. The team began play in mid-September 2009, playing in the Tier III Jr. A Western States Hockey League. On December 15, 2009 the Monsters announced the organization was given expansion approval into the Tier II North American Hockey League for the 2010–11 season and Fresno would host two levels of junior hockey for the first time.[3] On May 23, 2013, it was revealed the Monsters' North American Hockey League franchise would move to Wenatchee, Washington and become the second Wenatchee Wild. The Monsters continue to field a team in the Western States Hockey League.

On March 22, 2016, after six seasons coaching the WSHL Monsters, head coach and general manager Bryce Dale stepped down from his positions with the organization.[4][5]
