Randy Pearcey was born on July 27th, 1952 in St. John’s, NL. Randy grew up in the city, and graduated from the Memorial University in 1976 with an Education Degree. Randy taught physical education to primary-grade students for twenty-nine years before retiring in 2006. Randy has two children who both work with Xtreme Hockey; Adam (24), and Andrew (30). Pearcey currently co-owns Xtreme Hockey with Andrew McKim.
Randy’s hockey playing career was mainly local, but very respectable. “RP”, as he is known to most, was a provincial senior hockey star in the 1970’s and early 1980’s with the St. John’s Blue Caps, Gander Flyers, and Stephenville Jets. Randy was the first Newfoundland-born senior hockey player to score 50 goals in a season (1977), and was enshrined in the Newfoundland Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001. Randy won five Herder Memorial Championships as a player, and two as a coach of the Clarenville Caribous in 2009 and 2010. Randy also played university hockey with the defunct MUN Beothucks, and was one of the team’s all-time great players. Pearcey was inducted into the MUN Sports Hall of Fame in 1984. Randy’s true passion is teaching hockey to young children. Randy began his hockey school career by working with Howie Meeker, and started his own program in 1978. Pearcey excels at teaching basic concepts to young players at the initiation, Novice and Atom levels, and is a tremendous motivator.
Pearcey is also well-known for his current stint in broadcasting; the sixty-three year old is currently an analyst for the St. John’s Ice Caps AHL team.
When RP is not working on the ice or working in the booth, he enjoys spending time at his vacation home in Florida and spending time with family and friends.
