Goers attended the University of Massachusetts Lowell where he played four seasons of NCAA Division I college hockey with the UMass Lowell River Hawks men's ice hockey team. Following his graduation, Goers turned professional to join the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL for the final games and playoffs of their 2009–10 ECHL season.
In his third season with the Wranglers in 2011–12, Goers helped Las Vegas reach the Kelly cup finals. His successful season was noted with two stints in the American Hockey League, initially with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers before impressing in his latter spell with the Lake Erie Monsters to post 7 points in 19 games to remain until the end of the season. Goers was then rewarded with a one-year AHL contract with the Monsters for the following 2012–13 season.
In a season affected by injury and indifferent form, Goers compiled 1 assist in 19 games for the Monsters. Towards the end of the 2012–13 season, Goers was re-assigned to Central Hockey League affiliate, the Denver Cutthroats, for their inaugural playoff run. Despite being unable to contribute on the ice with Lake Erie, Goers was selected as the Monsters Man of the Year, for his contributions and charity work in the Cleveland area.
On August 5, 2013, Goers was returned to the ECHL, signing a one-year deal as a free agent with the Wheeling Nailers.
