The New York Islanders hired Chris Terreri to be their goalie coach. Another semi-recent former player is added to the staff.
We already declared the Summer of 2017 as the summer of depth signings for the New York Islanders. Although, if we were to give it another name we could go with the summer of hiring relatively young former players.
It doesn’t have that much of a ring to it, but now with Terreri in the mix, it’s even more applicable. It was announced on Wednesday that Terreri would join the staff as the team’s Goaltending Developmental Coach and Goalie Coach for the Sound Tigers.
For the last eight years, Terreri has served with the New Jersey Devils as their Goalie Coach. He coached Devils legend, Martin Brodeur.

He also experienced some success in the NHL as a player. In a 15 year career, he won two Stanley Cups with the Devils in 1995 and 2000. He was a fifth round draft pick for New Jersey back in 1983.
He was the starter for the Devils in the early 1990’s but some guy by the name of Marty Brodeur took his place.
He brings a lot of experience to the job and should be a nice addition to the staff. We’ll see how he deals with the likes of Linus Soderstrom and Ilya Sorokin if he ever comes over from the KHL.
