Jim Corsi
Buffalo Sabres - Goaltending Coach
[ Back to Coaches Index ]

Jim Corsi's duties with the team involve working with the Sabres' NHL goalkeepers as well as the team's prospects throughout the minor leagues. Under his tutelage, Sabres All-Star netminder Ryan Miller has benefited tremendously from Corsi’s unique style both on and off the ice.

Corsi brings with him over 20 years of experience as a player, coach, manager and hockey analyst. Previously, he held the position of Goaltending Coach with the Canadian Women's Team (1997-98), Ottawa University (CIAU) (1997-98), Schwenningen HC (Ger/DEL) (1997-98), St. Michael's Majors (OHL) (1994-97), McGill University (CIAU) (1992) and Concordia University (CIAU) (1992). Corsi is a member of the Concordia University Athletic Hall of Fame in hockey and soccer.

As a professional player in North America, Corsi played with the Edmonton Oilers and the Minnesota North Stars, as well as the Quebec Nordiques of the WHA. Corsi continued his career overseas, playing international hockey in Europe, Russia, and China from 1980-92. During that time, he was a member of the Italian National Team at the 1984 Winter Olympic Games, and represented Italy several times in the World Ice Hockey Championships.

Corsi is fluent in English, French, Italian and German. Corsi and his wife Cathy reside in Ile Bizard, Quebec with their two sons Stephen and Danny.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
