About Steve

Owner CPGS, Toronto Maple Leafs Goalie Coach

Steve has had a burning passion for goaltending since a ripe young age of 8. He grew up in Winnipeg where he played minor hockey until leaving home to play Juniors.

 

When Steve was 15, he moved away from home to begin playing Juniors in Trail, British Columbia. After Trail, he went on to play in the USHL for the Omaha Lancers and the Sioux City, Musketeers, before accepting a full scholarship to the University of Alabama-Huntsville (UAH).

 

 

After 3 years and a National Championship at UAH, Steve turned Pro, signing with the Boston Bruins organization and the Providence Bruins. Steve enjoyed a 9-year professional career, playing much of it in Fife, Scotland, where he met his wife, and started a family.

When finished playing professionally, Steve returned to UAH to pursue an MBA and coach their Goaltenders, including now-NHLer, Cam Talbot.

 

 

After UAH, Steve began coaching in the USHL (Omaha, Fargo, Des Moines), the NAHL (Topeka, Johnstown), and the WSHL (Casper).

 

Steve has had the great opportunity to learn from some of the best goalie coaches in the game like: Mitch Korn, Jacque Caron and Wayne Thomas to name a few. All of which he carries a great relationship with to this day.

 

Steve has been with the Toronto Maple Leafs for the past 7 seasons and has loved every minute. Working with some of the NHL's best Goaltenders such as Frederik

Andersen, Jack Campbell, James Reimer and 2-time Stanley cup winner Curtis McElhinney.

 

 

 "It's a grind, no doubt, but it's the best thing I've ever been a part of and I'm so grateful to be a part of such a storied franchise." - Steve Briere

 

 

 

Steve lives in Toronto during the season with his wife and 2 children and spends the off season in Stillwater, MN with his family.
