Mike's background and expertise extends from his expansive playing career from youth to pro. As a standout player at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) he garnered NCAA 1st Team All-American Status his senior season. This set the table for him to play 9 years of professional hockey in the AHL, ECHL and overseas in Finland, Germany, Japan, Korea, and the United Kingdom. Mike has also represented USA Hockey on two occasions.
"First and foremost my job is to be that of a mentor to the kids. Every kid is different. It is my job to get to know them as players and more importantly as individuals and figure out how I can accelerate their growth and development as hockey players and as people. Hockey shaped my life for the better, I want to pass that experience, knowledge and passion on to all the kids I work with." - Coach Mike
