Wildcats Bring in New Co-Owner

The Wichita Falls Wildcats have a new co-owner.

New Jersey businessman Alex Shnayderman was approved by the NAHL Board of Governors Wednesday afternoon as a new partner in the team, buying original owner Rick Brodsky's stake in the team.

Brodsky bought the Wildcats in 2004, with co-owner Roy Davoult joining the team in 2006.

Davoult and Shnayderman will own equal stakes in the team, and Head Coach/GM Paul Baxter still owns the small percentage of the team he was given with his contract last year.

The 40-year-old Shnayderman is a Winnipeg, Manitoba native who played competitive recreational hockey until he was 30, while building his fortune in the field of medical claims recovery.

He told Newschannel 6 he had been interested in the ownership side of hockey for a while, and started meeting with the Wildcats in February.
