His CSHL Midget AA teams were recognized as CSHL Champions, regional Silver Sticks Champions, Ohio SE District Champions, State of Ohio Champion and Mid-Am District Runner-Up at USA Hockey Tier II Nationals. Brian works tirelessly to strengthen his coaching skills and knowledge of the game. He currently works with the Atlanta Gladiators coaching staff in hockey operations and performance analytics, and held a similar position with the Cincinnati Cyclones (ECHL, IHL).
He will teach communication, expect commitment and self-discipline, and coaches a puck possession style of game. At 16U, his goal is to continue development of basic hockey skills while he and his coaches teach the concepts of puck support, flow and regroup, and how to recognize and react in game situations. His view of success is when young men on his team move up to the next level with increased maturity, confidence and ability to play this great game…for a lifetime. In the words of Badger Bob Johnson…”It’s A Great Day for Hockey!”
