From his first contract with the Plymouth Whalers (OHL) to his final with the Birmingham Bulls (SPHL), Myles McCauley has done some incredible things in the game of hockey. From signing his first professional contract at the age of 21 with the then Augusta Riverhawks (SPHL) in 2012 to playing in the East Coast Hockey League to even being in an NHL video game, McCauley has left his mark on the ice.

In an official statement exclusively with Under Review, Myles McCauley has announced his retirement from professional hockey.

McCauley recalls the feeling he got every single time the National Anthem finished and the crowd roared with excitement just before a game.

"It’s almost indescribable with knowing this is what you’ve always wanted to do and knowing this is show time." McCauley said. "You’re the entertainment for the evening so perform because there’s thousands of people watching you."

Every hockey player loves that feeling when the puck sneaks past the goaltender and they add a point next to their name, McCauley never forgot his first.

"It was awesome" McCauley reminisced on his first professional goal. "My first one was against Fayetteville (SPHL) when they were the FireAntz (now Marksmen) and was my first game as well too. I was still playing forward at the time so I got it in the 2nd period. I got a one timer from the hash marks and went short side bar down."

Although he won't be apart of a professional hockey team, McCauley will apart of an officiating team looking to make a difference in the game of hockey. He finishes his career with an impressive 99 goals and 102 assists. From everyone at Under Review, we wish Myles a happy retirement and all the best in his officiating career.
