Last season the 21 year-old Mahoney-Wilson, “Beemer” split time with Newmarket and Georgetown of the Ontario Provincial Jr. A Hockey League (OPJHL) totaling 10 wins in 22 games, posting 2 shutouts with a 3.29 goals against average and .905 save percentage.

Mahoney-Wilson was a high school hockey star playing for Catholic Memorial High School in Boston, Mass., posting a 1.16 goals-against average in 24 games in his senior season including six shutouts. Mahoney-Wilson was selected by the San Jose Sharks in the ninth round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft with the 288th overall pick, Brian is the nephew of San Jose Sharks head coach Ron Wilson.

Mahoney-Wilson has had a rough couple of years following his high school career. Brian played his first year of Junior Hockey Playing for the Walpole Stars of the Eastern Junior Hockey League where he posted a 23-15-2 record with a .920 save percentage and 2.73 goals against average. In 2005-06 Brian found himself with the Burnaby Express of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League, By mid-October of 2005 Mahoney-Wilson had posted a 4-2-0-1 record before being injured by a crosschecked to the head leaving him with a grade three concussion, a separated shoulder and a pulled hip muscle, after being out 5 weeks he with the injury he found himself off the team.
