Islanders Name Chris Terreri Goaltending Coach
The New York Islanders announced today that Chris Terreri (pictured on right) has been named the team's goaltending development coach and goalie coach for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Terreri will work with goaltenders throughout the Islanders organization, including those playing with the club's minor league affiliates and amateur prospects. He'll also serve the team in a scouting capacity.
Terreri spent the last sixteen seasons as a member of the New Jersey Devils coaching staff. He spent the last eight seasons as New Jersey's Goaltending Coach, working with goalies Martin Brodeur and Cory Schneider, among others.
“Chris has a vast amount of knowledge and experience, both as a player and a coach,” Islanders President and General Manager Garth Snow said. “We're excited for him to work with our goalies at every level, as well as assist in our scouting process and to make his mark on this crucial position.”
In 15 seasons as a player, Terreri played in 406 career games with the Devils, San Jose Sharks, Chicago Blackhawks and Islanders (two games). He won two Stanley Cups with New Jersey in 1995 and 2000. Terreri was New Jersey's fifth-round selection (85th overall) in the 1983 Entry Draft. He joined the Devils after a four-year career at Providence College, which included two NCAA Frozen Four appearances.
On the international stage, Terreri was a member of the United States Olympic Team in 1988. He also represented the U.S. during the 1985, '86, '87 and '97 World Championships.
