St. Louis Blues - Goaltending Coach
[ Back to Coaches Index ]


Jim Corsi was hired as goaltender coach for the St. Louis Blues on May 27, 2014 following 16 seasons with the Buffalo Sabres in the same role.

During his time with the Sabres, Corsi produced multiple Vezina Trophy winners, including Ryan Miller (2009-10) and Dominik Hasek (1998-99, 2001).  Overall, Corsi brings with him over 20 years of hockey experience, including time as a player, coach, manager and analyst. 

Previously, he has worked with both the Italian Men’s and Canadian Women’s National Teams, as well as with junior (OHL’s St. Michael’s Majors), collegiate (Ottawa University, McGill University, Concordia University) and professional European programs (Schwenningen HC, German League).  Throughout his coaching career, Corsi also developed the "Corsi Rating," which is an individual stat figured by calculating the number of shots directed toward the offensive goal versus the number of shots directed toward the defensive goal while in five-on-five situations (excludes empty net shots).

During his playing career, Corsi appeared in 89 professional games in North America, including stints with the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers and the World Hockey Association’s (WHA) Quebec Nordiques.

Fluent in English, French, Italian and German, Corsi also played internationally in Europe, Russia and China from 1980-92. In international tournaments, Corsi represented Italy several times, including eight World Ice Hockey Championships (1981-83, 1985-87, 1989-90) and the 1984 Winter Olympics.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
