The St. Louis Blues on Tuesday named Jim Corsi goaltending coach.

Corsi, 59, spent the past 16 seasons as goaltending coach for the Buffalo Sabres, working with Vezina Trophy winners Dominik Hasek and Ryan Miller, among others.

Corsi has more than 20 years of hockey experience, including time as a player, coach, manager and analyst. He is responsible for developing the "Corsi rating," an advanced metric which calculates the number of shots directed toward the offensive goal versus the number of shots directed toward the defensive goal while in 5-on-5 situations.

Corsi played in 26 NHL games for the Edmonton Oilers during the 1979-80 season and played for the Quebec Nordiques in the World Hockey Association. He played internationally in Europe, Russia and China from 1980-92, and represented Italy in eight World Championships and the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics.
