Bill Bentley has completed his fifth season as assistant general manager and 20th season with the Wolves organization.
One of a handful of people who has been with the organization since the team’s inception in 1994, Bentley has been instrumental in the hockey operations department for more than 16 years, which includes all four championship campaigns.
The Chicago native joined the organization as a statistician in 1994 and was promoted to team services manager a year later. The 45-year-old Bentley spent 12 seasons as the director of hockey administration --- handling team travel, immigration, and accounting for the hockey operations department --- before assuming the assistant general manager role in August 2009.
A graduate of Quincy College, Bentley served as the Director of Media Relations for the Chicago Cheetahs of the now-defunct Roller Hockey International during the 1993-94 season.
Bentley and his wife, Jennifer, live in Chicago.
