Two seasons (17-33-2 through 2018-19)
Shaun Millerick is in his second season as the head coach of the Franklin Pierce University men's ice hockey team in 2019-20. He spent the 2016-17 academic year as an assistant coach with the team and as an Assistant Director within the University's Admissions office. Through two seasons as the bench boss in Rindge, Millerick has posted a 17-33-2 (.346 winning percentage) record over 52 games at Franklin Pierce.
The 2018-19 season -- just Millerick's second on the bench -- saw the Ravens reach double digits in wins for the first time in program history, as the squad posted a 10-15-1 mark, including a 5-9-1 record in Northeast-10 play. The Ravens had another program first as well, as Alex Lester became the first player in program annals to earn NE10 Player of the Year honors, after leading the league in scoring (10-19-29) in his junior season. In addition, goaltender Kyle Martin landed on the NE10 All-Rookie Team after a strong showing as the team's top backup netminder.
Millerick's debut season as head coach saw the Ravens chalk up seven wins in 2017-18. It marked the final go-around for Tom McGuckin, who finished as one of the most decorated goaltenders in program history. McGuckin earned All-Northeast-10 Conference Second Team honors in his senior campaign, as well as NE10 Academic All-Conference accolades. At the end of the academic year, McGuckin was named as the Walter Peterson Male Senior Student-Athlete of the Year for the University, becoming the first men's hockey player to earn the award in school history.
Millerick, who enters his first collegiate coaching job at Franklin Pierce, was a four-year member of both the ice hockey and baseball teams at Becker College, and is the son of Frank Millerick, Becker's Assistant Vice President/Director of Athletics. Millerick served as a team captain for both squads as a senior. Over his career on the ice with the Hawks, he appeared in 31 games as a goaltender, posting a 3.89 goals-against average, a .884 save percentage, and an 8-12-2 record.
After graduating in 2014 with a degree in business administration, Millerick spent two more years at Becker before transitioning to Franklin Pierce. From 2014-16 at Becker, he served as an Admissions Representative, assistant men's ice hockey coach and assistant baseball coach.
