Blades Welcome Mike Gergosian as 2018-19 Goalie Coach

BOSTON (August 6, 2018) – The Boston Blades of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League are happy to welcome Mike Geragosian, who will serve as Goalie Coach for the 2018-19 season.

Geragosian comes with a wealth of NCAA experience, most recently with Endicott College and Boston University. He now works as a national consultant for professional, NCAA, and USA Hockey.

“I feel I will be bringing great experience and background in development for women’s hockey at a professional level,” Geragosian said. “I’ve been involved with women’s hockey as avid supporter and coach for several decades, along with my educational background that entails a unique approach of play, pride, passion, and purpose.”

Geragosian also holds his own goalie clinics for players of all ages in Massachusetts. These clinics have been in operation for over 30 years.

Blades’ Head Coach, Paul Kennedy, spoke of what the Gergosian hiring means for the team.

“When you build a home you start with a strong foundation. When you build a team you need to build from the net out,” Kennedy stated. “Coach Geragosian is that foundation builder. Our goaltenders now have the chance to compete at the highest level of women’s hockey in the CWHL.”

Geragosian is also a UMass Lowell Hall-of-Famer and former Assistant Coach for his alma mater. He spoke of what he’s looking forward to accomplishing this season.

“My excitement of this new challenge is to work with a mastermind coach, Paul Kennedy, and most of all encourage and educate all those involved with the program from players to personnel,” Geragosian concluded.
