Wade Flaherty
Winnipeg Jets - Goaltending Coach
[ Back to Coaches Index ]

Wade Flaherty joins the Jets following three seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks in the role of developmental goaltending coach. The Terrace, BC native ended his playing career in 2008 after 19 seasons of professional hockey between the pipes. Flaherty played in the IHL, ECHL, AHL, and NHL, including 120 games for the San Jose Sharks, New York Islanders, Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, and Nashville Predators. Flaherty played one season under Winnipeg Jets Head Coach Claude Noel in 2003-04 when Noel and Flaherty won the Calder Cup with the Milwaukee Admirals and Flaherty earned playoff MVP honors.

Flaherty has a close connection to Winnipeg after three seasons playing with the Manitoba Moose in the AHL. In three seasons with the Moose, Flaherty played in 112 games compiling a record of 62-36-9 and nine shutouts. The Moose reached the second round of the Calder Cup Playoffs in two of three seasons with Flaherty.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
