Warrior Alum Brian Pinho Returns to National Stage in Frozen Four!

When he first put on his Jr. Warrior jersey back when he was a squirt, Brian Pinho never imagined that he would someday be wearing the colors of a Division I powerhouse.  “I just really wanted to play Hockey East. It’s been a dream of mine since I was a kid.  Providence is a great school with a great business program and a hockey team that’s on the way up. It’s everything I wanted,” quipped Pinho last year after committing to Providence.

Pinho began his career with the Valley Jr. Warriors when he was just a squirt minor. Brian continued to develop over the years and was part of the successful ‘95 team, led by head coach Bill Franzese, that not only advanced to USA Hockey Nationals in 2008, but also collected four New England Hockey League (NEHL) titles in a six-year span.  Brain went on to an impressive high school career at St. John’s Prep in Danvers and was selected by the Washington Capitals in the sixth round of the 2013 NHL Draft.

Fast forward to this past week and Pinho is not only enjoying an outstanding Freshman season with the Providence Friars, but now will have an opportunity to return home to Boston and compete for the NCAA National Championship.  Pinho has been a consistent producer for the Friars this season and ranks among the top freshman in Hockey East with 17 points.  In the opening round of the NCAA Tournament Brian netted a key second period goal that helped vault the Friars to 7-5 win over Miami of Ohio. Brian will hope to keep that streak going tomorrow evening as the Providence Friars face off against the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks in the Frozen Four.
