UPEI Men’s Hockey Head Coach Forbes MacPherson is pleased to welcome Mark Carragher to the Panther coaching staff.

Carragher was most recently the head coach of the Kensington Monaghan Farms Wild major midget team in 2013–14 (of the NB-PEI Major Midget League), and also coached its predecessor, the Cornwall Thunder, in 2012–13. Both teams won the provincial major midget championship during the years he coached, with the Thunder also winning the silver medal at the Atlantic Major Midget Championship. Carragher is also an assistant coach with PEI’s 2015 Canada Games men’s hockey team and is in the process of completing the Hockey Canada Advanced Level 1 Coaching Program.

Carragher played university hockey at the University of Southern Maine from 2003–07 and finished as the career-scoring leader. After university, Carragher played professional hockey with the Texas Brahmas and the Amarillo Gorillas in the Central Hockey League from 2007–09.

“I am very excited to join Forbes on the coaching staff for the UPEI Panthers. I look forward to working with this group of dedicated young men to help bring a championship back to UPEI,” said Carragher.

“Mark is a tremendous addition to the UPEI Men’s Hockey coaching staff. He will bring a very high hockey IQ, a strong work ethic, and a competitiveness to our program that we look for from our coaches and players alike. I have had the opportunity to work with Mark in minor pro, and I am excited to reunite with him,” said MacPherson.
