Chicago Steel’s Brock Sheahan on the Keys to Sustainable Success

Aaron Wilbur

I’m a husband, father, sports nut, entrepreneur and grateful to call Vancouver home. I enjoy cooking, watching live music and hiking the North Shore mountains with my family. My son is a football player, which has turned me into a big football fan. It’s helped me appreciate what hockey parents go through, especially those who have little experience with the sport, when trying to navigate their child up the hockey ladder.

We’re joined by Brock Sheahan, head coach of the defending USHL Clark Cup Champions Chicago Steel, for episode #164 of the Glass and Out Podcast.
Sheahan is currently in his fourth season with the franchise and third as head coach, a role he took over part-way through the 2019-2020 season when Greg Moore was hired by the Toronto Maple Leafs to coach their AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies.
Under Sheahan’s guidance, Chicago has enjoyed incredible success and continues the development of a winning culture. The team has finished first overall in back-to-back seasons, capturing the 2021 Clark Cup, and was siting atop the standings at the time of this podcast airing. At the 2021 NHL Draft, eight current or former members of the Steel heard their names called, including three in the 1st round, highlighted by first overall pick Owen Power.
Sheahan hails from Lethbridge, Alberta, played four seasons at the University of Notre Dame and following his pro career, returned to South Bend as a volunteer coach. Prior to joining the Steel, he was an associate coach with the College of Holly Cross.
Hear how he’s continued to foster a winning culture in Chicago, how his outside the box thinking on player development has helped his coaching career, and thoughts on how to improve youth hockey practices.
