The former captain of the Canadian women’s hockey team says he’s been living in the city for two months, and will soon be getting a new apartment, in what could be his first New York home since his retirement.
Barguiler, who played a key role in Canada’s gold medal-winning World Cup in 2002, will be moving into a home he purchased on the Upper West Side.
It’s his second New York apartment since he retired.
“I have been living for two and a half months in New york and I am very excited to move in,” he said.
Barguiling had been living with his wife, Gail, in New Jersey, after he announced his retirement from the game last week. “
The people here are amazing and I look forward to working with them.”

They are expecting their first child, a daughter, and he is also expected to take on a new role in his wife’s life.
“We have a lot of great people here.
I have a very strong family, and I will be very busy with my daughter, so I am looking forward to doing something special,” Barguile said.
The 54-year-old said he has been looking forward in New England since his days playing for the Hartford Whalers, who he coached from 1998-2007.
“If you know me, you know I’m not a very social guy,” Barguriling said.
Barguziling said he enjoys the New York area and appreciates its many people.
“New York is very welcoming and people are very friendly.
I like the people and I like being around people, and that’s what I like about New York,” he added.
“But New York is just a big city and it’s not a small city, so you have to have a big home.”
The NHL has yet to announce a date for his return to Canada, but the NHL’s board of governors has already announced that Barguiles contract is up after this season.
“While we are pleased Warren has been able to return to the game, he remains under contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs for the remainder of this season,” said an NHL spokesperson.
“Warren remains a key member of our organization, and we wish him all the best.”
