More recently, Mickey was the Goaltending Coach for the NWHL's Buffalo Beauts from 2017-2019, and is currently the Skills Development Coach for the 2021 Kelly Cup Champions, the Fort Wayne Komets of the ECHL.
In addition to his junior, collegiate, and professional coaching responsibilities, Mickey has spent time working with numerous prestigious hockey schools, including 3D Hockey, Golden Horseshoe Hockey School, Mitch Korn's Goalie Camp, and many more. Away from the Stampede, Cory resides in Amherst, NY with his family.
