  • Walter "Coke" Fehl - 1994
Coke Fehl played senior hockey in Wausau during the 1950s and 1960s when the Wausau Vets were one of the state’s top senior amateur teams. By the late 1960s, the team had aged and the high school that dropped hockey in the late 1950s no longer provided a pipeline of players.
By 1972, high school hockey returned at Wausau East and Wausau West. Coke Fehl founded the Wausau Cyclones to provide an outlet for these high school players after they graduated. He was coach and general manager through 1984. He also served as league officer and performed numerous on ice and off ice duties for the team.
Fehl was recognized by the Wausau Daily Herald in 1981 and 1984 for his contributions to senior hockey and youth hockey in the Wausau area. Coke Fehl was credited for making hockey in Wausau what it is today—a success.
