Jerry comes to the Advantage ICE program with a wealth of coaching and playing experience at the highest levels in the game. Currently in his third season as the Assistant Coach at Northeastern University, Jerry previously worked as an Assistant Coach at Brown University.
During his playing day, Keefe was named the MVP of the Omaha Lancers in the USHL before accepting a scholarship and starring for four years at Providence College. Keefe established himself on a national level, notching 52 points in just 37 games in one season, the highest total Providence had seen in 15 years. Jerry graduated from Providence and excelled his game to the AHL level, spending time with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks before turning to coaching.
A native of Billerica, MA, Keefe currently resides in Saugus with his wife and two children. We are excited to have Jerry on board with our Advantage ICE coaching staff, and he is equally as excited to be able to help aid his '06 Elite team in their progression through the hockey ranks.
