Doug Sauter

Class of 2013

Doug Sauter enters the Central Hockey League Hall of Fame as the first coach inducted.  The league’s all-time leader in wins (544) and games coached (918), the Fairlight, Saskatchewan native posted an all-time CHL record of 544-291-83 (.638 win percentage) in 14 seasons with the Oklahoma City Blazers.  Four times, Sauter won the CHL’s regular season title (1995-96, 1996-97, 1998-99 and 2000-01) and twice he won the CHL Championship (1996 & 2001).  The legendary coach, known by many for his iconic moustache, made the post-season in 11 of his 14 seasons and was named the CHL Coach of the Year in 1996.  Sauter led the Blazers to an unreal run between 1995 and 2001 posting a 279-106-25 record, good for a .711 win percentage.  The club averaged close to 47 wins a season over that six-year span.
