Liam Maguire      

World's #1 NHL Historian, Auctioneer & Speaker

Liam Maguire bills himself as the world’s number one NHL historian and trivia expert.

“There is nobody on the planet who knows more history, anecdotes, statistics and trivia on the NHL than Liam Maguire.” –Yvan Cournoyer, former captain of the Montreal Canadiens, ten time Stanley Cup winner, HOF.

Liam is a four time published author, with his most recent book, ‘The Real Ogie! The life and legend of Goldie Goldthorpe being released April 5, 2019. His previous publication was released in 2012, titled, ‘Next Goal Wins’ published by Random House and with a forward written by Wayne Gretzky. His first two books were published in 1994 and 2001 and the forwards were written by Dick Irvin and Bobby Orr respectively. The books were trivia based with history and anecdotes on the NHL, more comprehensive and detailed than any other publication ever published. This is in keeping with Liam’s ability to add to the ‘rest of the story’ regarding great NHL players, moments and games.

Liam worked in the radio industry for more than 30 years including most recently a show on Rogers 1310am in Ottawa that he hosted for four years called the Ultimate Hockey Show. He has worked countless events coast-to-coast in Canada and the United States with 65 Hall of Fame players including Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe, Rocket Richard, Jean Beliveau, Guy Lafleur, Mike Bossy and Denis Potvin.

He has appeared on numerous national radio and TV shows including Hockey Night in Canada, Sportsnet, TSN’s Off the Record and radio shows in every province of Canada plus numerous States.

Liam still plays hockey, he has two children including a son who he coached in minor hockey for twelve years. He has a restaurant named after him in Ottawa, Liam Maguire's, which has been in operation for sixteen years. He’s an ardent supporter of the Canadian military, local law enforcement and our first responders.
