Terreri headlines ADM goaltending clinic in New Jersey

Feb. 15, 2017 | Forty aspiring boys and girls goaltenders turned New Jersey’s Prudential Center practice facility into a puck-stoppers paradise last week during an American Development Model youth goaltending clinic led by the New Jersey Devils and USA Hockey.
 
Phil Osaer, USA Hockey’s ADM manager for goaltending, helped provide the training, which included a presentation for parents and coaches in addition to on-ice guidance for the athletes. New Jersey Devils goaltending coach Chris Terreri, a U.S. Olympian in 1988, also worked with the participants on and off the ice. Terreri has a long history with USA Hockey, dating back to his own youth goaltending days. In 1975, he led his team from Warwick, Rhode Island, to a USA Hockey national championship. He later competed for Team USA at the IIHF Men’s World Championship in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1997.
 
“It was an honor to have Chris join us for the clinic and it was great to work with so many enthusiastic goalies, coaches and parents,” said Osaer. “One thing that stood out to me was Chris emphasizing the importance of young goalies playing multiple sports. It benefits them in terms of developing their all-around athleticism, which will help them become better goalies, and also in terms of avoiding injuries.”
