The following year, Brickley was hired to do the Bruins TV broadcasts on channel 38, replacing Derek Sanderson. In 2000, he moved to NESN, doing primarily the road games, alongside Dave Shea. Since 2005, Brickley has done all NESN Bruins telecasts home and away, and since 2007, all of those have been alongside Jack Edwards.
Brickley attended UNH, where Edwards actually called the games that Brickley was playing in. Brickley had a 14-year professional hockey career (both minor league and NHL), including the Bruins from 1988-1992, and actually got his start in broadcasting while he was a player with the Grizzlies of Salt Lake City. While he was injured, Brickley participated in the radio broadcasts of the IHL club.
He made a brief comeback as a player during the 1999-2000 season when he played three games for the Providence Bruins.
Brickley also has national broadcast experience, working games with Versus/NBC.
