GB36 pairs up with Brown, Northeastern, and Sacred Heart

The Gamebreakers 36 program will be hosting three Division I college programs for a showcase run at Holiday Twin Rinks June 27-July 1. This camp will consist of two age groups. The first session will be 1997-2001's. The second will be 2002-2005. The showcase will feature three Division I coaches on the ice with the boys for practices and  games.


The coaches will be Jerry Keefe (Northeastern), Mike Levine (Brown), and Scott McDougall (Sacred Heart). All three coaches have been with their programs for years and spend many hours recruiting players. We will have a question and answer session on Wednesday at 3:30PM.


Mike Levine joined head coach Brendan Whittet's staff as an Assistant Coach in July 2013. Levine comes to Brown after spending the past two seasons as the head coach at Kimball Union Academy in Meriden, New Hampshire.

"I am very happy to have Mike Levine join our Brown Hockey family," said Whittet. "Most importantly, Mike is a great person who has those innate character traits that have allowed and will continue to allow him to be a tremendous recruiter and coach. He possesses a relentless work ethic and is driven to succeed."

Recognized as an elite recruiter, Levine has cultivated relationships throughout the industry and has a proven record at both the collegiate and prep school levels. While at Kimball Union, Levine recruited and coached elite college prospects and commitments, including recruits for Boston University, Boston College, Providence, UMass, Merrimack and Penn State.

In two seasons at KUA, Levine led the Wildcats to an impressive 52-7-3 record. During the 2011-12 season, his squad won the NEPISHA small school championship and in 2012-13, the #1-ranked Wildcats were upset in the first round by The Gunnery.

Prior to serving as the head coach at Kimball Union, Levine spent two seasons as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Utica College. As an assistant coach at Utica, Levine helped attract the players that were a part of the Pioneers' run to the 2013 NCAA Division III Frozen Four. His introduction to coaching came at New Hampton Prep, where he spent four seasons and won a Division II Championship in 2009.

Levine has also coached at USA Hockey's Select 15 and 16 Camp during the past eight summers. 

In addition to coaching, Levine served as an Associate Director of Admission at Kimball Union and as an Assistant Director of Admission at New Hampton.

A 2005 graduate of Utica and native of Sandwich, Massachusetts, Levine played in 61 games for the Pioneers, before receiving an M.Ed. from Utica in 2011.

Scott McDougall
After joing the Pioneer coaching staff in December of 2009, Scott McDougall begins his sixth season as and assistant coach at SHU.  McDougall joined the staff just as the Pioneers began a program-record setting 12-game unbeaten streak.  Before coming to SHU, McDougall spent two years on the coaching staff at Wesleyan as both an assistant and graduate assistant coach. McDougall's duties at Sacred Heart primarily consist of working with the team's forwards and recruiting.

McDougall is a 2007 graduate of the University of Connecticut, where he was a four-year member of the men's ice hockey team. McDougall registered 22 goals and 21 assists for 43 career points while playing in 89 contests as a forward for Huskies. He has also been active as a camp and club team counselor, instructor, and coach over the last seven years. McDougall has worked with the Massachusetts Player Development Camp handling 13-15 year olds and the Connecticut Hockey Experience with 13-18 year-old players. Before joining the Pioneers, McDougall was the head coach of the Neponset Valley River Rats Under-18 team of the Massachusetts Select League for 5 seasons.


Jerry Keefe enters his fifth season at Northeastern, and second as associate head coach. Keefe served as the assistant coach for three seasons before being promoted to his current post in 2014. Keefe has established himself as a notable name in the New England college hockey ranks, making stops at Westfield State and UMass Boston before his two seasons at Brown from 2009 to 2011. Keefe has also gained valuable experience through many different capacities with USA Hockey.

Keefe oversees the Huskies' power play unit and holds a significant role in Northeastern's recruiting process, including the recruitment of Kevin Roy, who led the team in scoring for the third straight season in 2014-15 and was named the program's 18th All-American in team history. During the 2014-15 season, the NU power play unit converted 34 times, ranked second in Hockey East and tied for seventh nationally. The Huskies' 20.7% (34-of-164) success rate on the man advantage was good for 10th in the country last season.

Keefe and the Huskies are coming off a 2014-15 season that saw NU go 16-16-4 overall, including a seven-game winning streak that was tied for the second longest in team history. The Huskies advanced to the Beanpot championship for the fourth time in five years, and hosted a playoff series at Matthews Arena for the first time since 2009. Over the final 27 games of the season, Northeastern went 16-8-3, tied for the eighth best winning percentage in the nation in that span. 

With one of the youngest rosters in college hockey consisting of 19 underclassmen, including 12 freshmen, Keefe helped guide the 2013-14 Huskies to one of their best seasons in program history. NU was 19-14-4, which was tied for the sixth most wins in team history as well as tied for the fourth largest turnaround in the NCAA. The squad reached the Beanpot championship game for the third time in the last four years and returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2011.

Northeastern finished the 2013-14 campaign ranked 19th in the poll, and was ranked as high as ninth on two occasions, NU's highest ranking since the end of the 2008-09 season. The Huskies were also 18th in the final PairWise ranking, narrowly missing an at-large bid to the national tournament.

In his second year at Northeastern, Keefe was instrumental in Northeastern's first victory over Boston University in the Beanpot Tournament in 25 years. Keefe's impression was also felt through the recruiting class he ushered in as Northeastern's freshmen class led the way with 77 points (24-53-77) in 2012-13.

In his first season on NU's bench, Keefe assisted the Huskies to their fifth-longest unbeaten streak in program history. He also helped lead Northeastern to three road victories against the No. 2 ranked team in the country during the 2011-12 season.

In his first season behind the bench with Brown in 2009-10, Keefe helped direct the Bears to an ECAC semifinals berth for the first time since the 2002-03 campaign.

One of Keefe's most notable accomplishments was the resurrection of the Westfield State hockey program for the 2008-09 season after a 20-year dormant phase. Keefe was able to recruit 27 student-athletes and led the Owls to a second-place finish in the MASCAC. Keefe's squad posted an 11-9-4 record and made the playoffs for the first time since 1980-81.

Before breathing life into Westfield State's program, Keefe served as an assistant for one season with UMass Boston in 2006-07.

Keefe's roles with USA Hockey include the Yankee Conference Team New England District head evaluator (2006-08), an instructor for New England District Festivals (2006-07), a coach for the USA Hockey Select-17 Festival in St. Cloud, Minn. (2007-08), and a coach for the Massachusetts Satellite Program (2008-present).

As a student-athlete, Keefe was a four-year center with Providence College from 1996 to 2000 and finished with 98 points (30-68-98) in 102 career games. After leading the Friars with 52 points in 37 games, the highest single-season point total in 15 years, Keefe was honored as New England's Most Improved Player. Upon graduation, Keefe's professional hockey career started at the end of the 2000 season with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks (AHL) and Trenton Titans (ECHL). Keefe's pro career lasted five years, including a pair of seasons in Europe.

A native of Billerica, Massachusetts, Keefe was a three-time All-Scholastic player and a member of a state championship team at Matignon High School, earning Massachusetts Player of the Year honors in 1993. Prior to enrolling at Providence, Keefe also played for the U.S. National Under-17 Team that won a silver medal in Tokyo in 1994 and the U-16 team that went 4-0 in Switzerland.

In 1995, he was the team MVP and the leading scorer for the Omaha Lancers (USHL), leading the team in scoring for the second straight year as a captain in 1996. He was twice named a USHL All-Star and still ranks in the Lancers' all-time top 10 in scoring.

Keefe graduated from Providence with a B.S. in business administration and currently resides in Saugus, Massachusetts with his wife, Maria, and their son, Owen (9), and five-year old daughter, Emmerson.
