Instructor: Matt Gorman - MCN Sports Advising & Skill Development
Matt Gorman has a strong background in ice hockey. Growing up in St. Albert, Matt went on to play in the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) for the Bow Valley Eagles and the Fort Saskatchewan Traders. It was while playing for the Traders that Matt became only the eighth player in league history to score over 60 goals in a season, and was named league MVP.
His play earned him a scholarship offer to play DI collegiate hockey at the University of North Dakota, but Matt turned pro instead, spending the next 11 seasons playing professionally in both the US and Europe. While in Europe he spent time in Germany and Italy, winning two league championships and two scoring titles along the way. He retired from pro hockey in 2008.
Matt’s dedication to the game is shown through his passion and ability to help young athletes work and strive towards their goals. He has tremendous teamwork ethic and has developed the MCN team with this mindset. He believes in advocating for his players and looks out for their best interest when guiding and mentoring them through the recruitment and training process.
