Prior to becoming a renowned coach, Guy Boucher shined with the McGill Redmen’s (Athletics) Hockey Club between 1991 and 1995. He accumulated a total of 183 points in 141 games over 4 seasons. He was named twice to the varsity all-star team in addition to assuming the role of captain during his route. He is an undisputed leader and has an exceptional work ethic that allowed him to win the Guy-Lafleur trophy awarded to the best student player in Quebec in 1994.
In addition to excelling in hockey, he managed to earn a degree in history with a minor in environmental biology at McGill before eventually completing a master’s degree in sports psychology at the Université de Montréal.
He began his coaching career in 1996-1997 when his former Redmen teammate Martin Raymond, now head coach, offered him the position of assistant coach. Boucher had no plans for this career, but he was very happy to be back in the hockey world.
He then travels from Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL), to Lac-St-Louis (QMJHL), to Rimouski (QMJHL) to really start his coaching career from 1997 to 2006. He won the Jean Rougeau Trophy (champion of the season) and the President’s Cup (series champion) with Rimouski in 2005. He then went to Drummondville 2006 to 2009 where he won the President’s Cup in 2009, but this time as head coach. These achievements also allowed him to get his hands on the Paul Dumont Trophy awarded to the greatest QMJHL sports personality of 2009.
After having worked his way up through the junior leagues, Boucher made the jump to the pros in 2009 when he became head coach of the Hamilton Bulldogs in the AHL. His team had a great season and he was named coach of the year. In 2010, he joined the Tampa Bay Lightning and led them to a conference final in his first year. After 3 seasons with the Lightning, he starts a new challenge with SC Bern. He arrives at mid-season in 2014 and leads the team to no less than the Swiss Cup. He returns to the NHL in 2016 with the Ottawa Senators and repeats the same feat that he did with the Lightning; lead his team to the conference final in his first season. After 3 seasons of coaching the Senators, he joined the RDS team in 2019.
In addition to all the accomplishments already mentioned, Guy Boucher also stands out at the international level. He is assistant coach of the Canadian U-18 team in 2006, 2007, 2008. The team won the tournament in 2008. He is then assistant coach of Team Canada Junior in 2009 where Canada wins its 5th consecutive gold medal.
