New Assistant getting used to things

After being named Assistant General Manager of the Boston Bruins last week, Mike McMahon is starting to learn his way around the new office.

"It's been great so far," he said. "I've really enjoyed working with GM Eric Lavoie. We share the same philosophy when it comes to evaluating talent and it's been great. I'm thankful to him and the entire organization for giving me the opportunity to work in the NEFHL."

McMahon has been looking at possible minor league additions that could help the team's feeder system, the Providence Bruins.

"There is some talent that we've noticed as a management team," he said. "The key to long-term success of any franchise is manufacturing talent through the draft and younger players. Homegrown, if you will. We've identified some players there and have opened a dialogue with them."

Ultimately, McMahon is just happy to be a part of the league.

"When you get into the hockey management business, you want to go work at the top, and the NEFHL is the top of the mountain," he said. "I had a few teams offer me assistant positions when I originally threw my name out there and chose Boston and Mr. Lavoie because I thought it was the best fit for me, and also a the place where I could help the most. Being from Boston, I knew the history of the organization, and what it means to this city."

He deflected a question about one day running his own franchise.

"Hey, if an offer comes along it comes along, but it's not even a thought in my head right now," said McMahon. "My numer-one goal, my only goal, is to help Mr. Lavoie bring a championship to this organization in anyway that I can. Whether that be giving my opinion on an upcoming trade, evaluating some younger talent, I'll do whatever Mr. Lavoie and the organization asks."
