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.

    Brazil fans have cheered their team in the first and only meeting with players before they travel to the World Cup in Russia, but many others also complained about the squad's lack of contact with local supporters.
