Andrew McKim was born on July 6th, 1970 in Saint John, New Brunswick. McKim co-owns Xtreme Hockey with Randy Pearcey, and have been in partnership since 2002.
McKim’s hockey background is extensive. Andrew dominated the minor hockey system, and made the Verdun Junior Canadians as a sixteen year old. While only standing at 5 feet 8 inches, McKim’s quickness, skill and hockey IQ helped him rack up 252 points in only 200 regular season games with the Canadians. In 1989-90, McKim was traded from Verdun to Hull (now Gatineau) for arguably the best NHL goaltender ever; Martin Brodeur. The trade worked out for both teams, as McKim posted 130 points in 70 games as a nineteen year old.
Andrew moved on to have an eleven year professional hockey career that saw the right winger suit up in the NHL, IHL, AHL, DEL (Germany), and Swiss-A Leagues. At the NHL level, McKim played in 38 games and registered 5 points while playing for the Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings. Andrew’s biggest professional season came in 1993-94 with the Adirondack Red Wings (AHL), scoring 94 points in just 77 games. McKim also excelled at the international level, adding 15 points in 14 games for Canada’s National Team.
McKim retired from professional hockey in 2001, and moved to Newfoundland shortly thereafter. McKim has two children (Emily, born in 1998 and Matthew, born in 2000). When he is not at the arena coaching kids, McKim enjoys moose hunting, fishing, and golf.
