The next three seasons were spent with the Springfield Pics of the Eastern Junior Hockey League where he scored 137 points in 62 games in his final season.

Coach Pomichter said: “Wolf Pack is the next step because I'm looking forward to coaching at a higher level in an advanced league while passing on my vast knowledge of the game. My goal is to challenge the players to be the best they can be. I'm looking forward to working with players and families who are dedicated and committed to making this team a success.”
