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.
"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
