Kevin Cady

Central Maine Community College has appointed Kevin Cady as the head coach of its new men’s hockey team that is slated to begin play next fall. Cady spent eleven years in hockey operations with the Philadelphia Flyers and Buffalo Sabres organizations. Over the course of his 750 games in professional hockey, he worked closely with many former NHL greats, including Hall of Famers Bernie Parent, Bob Clarke, Bill Barber, Mark Howe and Daryl Sittler. He also served under several top NHL coaches, including Pat Quinn, Bob McCammon and Kevin Dineen.

Cady served as trainer for the 1978 and 1979 American Hockey League (AHL) Maine Mariners Calder Cup Champions, the 1985 NHL Stanley Cup finalist Philadelphia Flyers, and the 2010 AHL Atlantic Division Champion Portland Pirates, then the top affiliate of the Sabres. He was the associate equipment manager for the 2010 AHL All-Star Classic held in Portland.

An off-ice official with the AHL, Cady was a regional scout for the Tier 3 Junior New Mexico Renegades of the Western States Hockey League. Certified as a Level 3 hockey coach by USA Hockey, he is currently the assistant varsity coach and head JV coach at Cheverus High School. He is a graduate of Cheverus and SUNY Empire State College.

Cady owns and operates Cady & Associates Investigation, Inc., a full-service private investigation agency in Portland. He retired in 2010 after a 25-year career in Maine law enforcement.

“We are thrilled to hire Kevin Cady as our new hockey coach,” said CMCC Athletic Director Dave Gonyea. “He brings years of experience and many contacts that will be very valuable in the recruiting process, and his disciplined approach and ability to relate to today’s players will help put CM on the hockey map.”

“I am pleased to be offered the head coaching position at CMCC,” said Cady. “The fact that we will build a collegiate team from the ground up is appealing to me. The College and AD Dave Gonyea are building a first-class team.”

The CM Mustangs will begin play in the 2016-17 season of the ACHA’s Northeast Collegiate Hockey Association. The ACHA (American Collegiate Hockey Association) is an organization of over 415 college and university affiliated programs. The Mustangs will play its home games at Norway Savings Bank Arena in Auburn. For more information, contact Dave Gonyea at dgonyea@cmcc.edu.
