He was a two-time all-star rearguard at McGill from in 1984 and 1987, and he won the Bobby Bell trophy as team MVP. He also graduated as the second-highest scoring defenseman in McGill history. He moved to England in 1987 to become a player-coach for Whitley Warriors, which was the first Mike Babcock appearance in the ice hockey coaching scene.
Babcock has had a distinguished coaching career, having entered the 2007-2008 season with a lifetime 602–449–107 regular season coaching record, including a 177–97–54 NHL mark in four seasons (two with Anaheim and two with Detroit). Babcock also guided Team Canada to gold medals at the 1997 world junior championships in Geneva and the 2004 IIHF world hockey championships in Prague. He also coached the Moose Jaw Warriors, the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns, Spokane Chiefs, and the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks (now Anaheim Ducks).
