Coach Hackett's Playing Statistics

Jeff Hackett recently completed his second season as the Avalanche’s goaltending coach.

Hackett, who joined the coaching staff on July 12, 2006, works not only with the Avalanche’s goaltenders but also each goaltending prospect throughout the system.

Hackett appeared in exactly 500 games over a 15-year career in the National Hockey League, which included stints with the New York Islanders, San Jose Sharks, Chicago Blackhawks, Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers. The London, Ontario native was the Islanders’ second-round pick in the 1987 Entry Draft.

One of his best seasons came as a member of the Blackhawks in 1996-97, when he ranked third in the NHL in goals-against average (2.16) and tied for second in save percentage (.927). Hackett won 20 or more games in three consecutive seasons from 1997-98 to 1999-00. Hackett posted a 166-244-56 lifetime record with a 2.90 goals-against average and a .902 save percentage with 26 shutouts. He retired on February 9, 2004.

Prior to joining the NHL ranks, Hackett backstopped Springfield (AHL) to the Calder Cup championship in 1989-90 and was named playoff MVP. He also led Oshawa to the Ontario Hockey League title in 1986-87.

Jeff and his wife, Cheryl, have two sons, Montana and Kurtis.
