Pierre McGuire’s Personal Life:
Pierre McGuire might be famous for his commentary and insightful facts about hockey, but when it comes to his personal life he, seems a little introverted. McGuire has been married twice. His first wife was Joan Leonard, a Providence College student he met during his time coaching at the Babson College.
He later married another woman named Melanie with whom he has a son and a daughter. He is often rumoured to be gay/bisexual because of the way he gushes over the players. But since he has a wife and children this news has to be false.
