Dec. 13, 2016 | Hundreds of hockey coaches from throughout New England come together each year for the Boston Bruins Coaching Symposium, held in collaboration with Massachusetts Hockey and USA Hockey. This year's event included the excitement of a new venue — Warrior Ice Arena at Boston Landing — the Boston Bruins' new practice home, which hosted on- and off-ice presentations from USA Hockey's Mark Tabrum, Kevin McLaughlin, Roger Grillo and Kristen Wright, among others.

April 25, 2017 | Last week, Minnesota Hockey hosted 60 youth coaches and hockey directors for a two-day program-building seminar in St. Louis Park. Guy “Goose” Gosselin, Roger Grillo, Ken Martel and Phil Osaer were there from USA Hockey to share development insights and also help lead on-ice sessions for high-performance 15-year-old skaters and goaltenders from throughout the state.
"It was basically a mini-NARCE," said Martel. "We talked about club development and player development, Phil and Goose led on-ice sessions and Roger went in-depth on coaching. It was a good event and a good opportunity to share ideas with the coaches and directors in Minnesota."
Dave Margenau, president of Minnesota Hockey, called it "an inspiring couple of days" and said that attendees "left with a tremendous amount of excitement."
