Pirates Hire McCauley to Lead Premier Team

By Brett Bruneteau, 10/22/15, 11:45AM EDT


Saco, ME – The Pirates Hockey Club is proud to announce the hiring of new premier division head coach, Dave McCauley.  McCauley was previously the head coach and general manager of the Bay State Breakers USPHL Elite team.
“Dave brings a wealth of hockey experience to our organization”, stated Pirates President and Owner Sean O’Brien.  “We are very excited to have him on board and look forward to having him working with our players, their families, and our staff.”
McCauley, a coach focused on player development, has had a rich tradition of helping players move on to the higher levels of the game.  In his time with the Breakers, McCauley moved over 160 players play onto the NCAA college hockey ranks.
Teams coached by McCauley have also had enormous success, boasting a .672 winning percentage with him behind the bench.
McCauley will call on that success as he looks to lead the Pirates through tough waters, facing off with division powerhouse, the Philadelphia Flyers Junior Hockey Team this upcoming weekend.  The team will then head to the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, MA for the Junior Bruins Shootout where they will battle with the Rochester Junior Americans, P.A.L. Junior Islanders, and Philadelphia Flyers again.
Tickets for upcoming games can be purchased either at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ or at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, MA.
All games are also broadcasts online through the exclusive broadcasting partner of the USPHL, Fast Hockey.  Air times and game schedule can be found at
