Matt played three years of Jr. A Hockey in Canada where he was awarded team MVP and Playoff MVP. He finished his career at the Alberta Junior hockey league Championship final.
Matt was forced to give up his opportunity to play NCAA after experiencing a career ending injury. This has allowed him to bring his experience and passion for development to goaltenders across British Columbia.
With 10 years of goaltending instruction experience, combined with his dedication and love for developing goaltenders at all ages, Matt has quickly established himself as one of the elite goalie coaches in British Columbia. Matt has worked closely with NHL and WHL goalie coaches, which gives him a wide range of new technical knowledge and a professional mind-set.
Matt is currently the Goaltending Coach for the MML North East Chiefs, he also previously coached for the BCHL Alberni Valley Bulldogs where they won the Island Conference. Matt also works yearly with the Okanagan Hockey School/Academy.
Matt continues to work on a daily basis with goalies at the Bantam, Major Midget, Junior A, WHL, NCAA and Pro levels. Matt and Shaun Murray work together at the North Shore Winter Club and continue to find yearly success with our goaltenders moving onto the next level.
