Coaches Profile – Feb 2020


IP Coach, MMHA Ice Director

How many years have you been coaching at MMHA?
20 years

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
Working side by side with family and friends to develop players and watch them grow

Favourite hockey quote
“I told you I was Wile E. Coyote!”
MMHA Coach Gary Grougrou

Cool tip for players
Always try to stop at the front of the net when you get a breakaway. The goalie may make the first save but the rebound is sitting there where you can get an easy tap-in to score. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Give your all and try your hardest each shift. That’s in my opinion the quickest way to develop

Favourite players & teams
MMHA’s own…Kevin Hancock, AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners and Joe Sakic, Detroit Red Wings

ME 116

How many years have you been coaching at MMHA?
8 years

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
Listening to the chatter in the dressing room and on the bench. It has changed a lot as the players have grown up, but it always makes me laugh.

Favourite hockey quote
“Who’s the poodle?”
One of my players when a new ref came on the ice

Cool tip for players
Go home and study hard, because chances are you are not going to the NHL

Favourite team
Philadelphia Flyers
