Governor’s Academy boys prep varsity head coach Brian McGuirk (Danvers, Mass.) joins the latest episode of New England Hockey Journal’s “RinkWise” podcast.
A 2004 graduate of the prep school in Byfield, Mass., McGuirk went on to play four years at Boston University where he skated under legendary coach Jack Parker (Somerville, Mass.), won three Beanpots Tournament Championships and served as team captain during his senior year.
After finishing his collegiate playing career on Comm. Ave., the Columbus Blue Jackets draft selection turned pro and played several seasons in the AHL and ECHL.
Initially on track for a law enforcement career, he made the decision to pursue coaching, and it led him to his alma mater, where he has built some gritty competitive teams in his several seasons behind the Independent School League bench.
