Eric Raymond

Goaltending Coach

Wolf Pack goaltending coach Eric Raymond is in his fourth season with the New York Rangers organization in 2019-20.

 

Raymond works in partnership with New York Rangers assistant coach and goaltending coach Benoit Allaire, assisting him with goaltender development, a working relationship that spans over 30 years.

 

In addition to his experience with the Ranger organization, Raymond spent eight seasons (2010-11 through 2017-18) as goaltending coach of the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).  Raymond helped guide the Mooseheads to a Memorial Cup championship in 2012-13, a campaign in which Halifax went 58-6-3-1 and also captured the QMJHL regular-season and playoff (President’s Cup) titles.  That team’s number-one netminder, Zach Fucale, then went on to become the first goaltender selected in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, picked 36th overall by the Montreal Canadiens.

 

Raymond, a 47-year-old Montreal native, also has had significant international coaching success, having been on the staff of the Gold Medal-winning Canadian team at the 2018 World Junior Hockey Championship.  With that squad, Raymond mentored backstops Carter Hart and Colton Point.

 

In 11 total years coaching in the QMJHL, Raymond developed several goalies for the Canadian National Under-18 and Under-20 teams. He also won the President’s Cup as a goaltender himself twice, with the Laval Titan in 1989-90 and Verdun College-Francais in 1991-92, both times with Allaire as his goaltending coach.

Raymond enjoyed a 16-year pro playing career, which included 33 AHL games with the Fredericton Canadiens and Rochester Americans.  He also saw action in the International Hockey League, ECHL, Colonial Hockey League and Central Hockey League, before spending time with the Canadian National Team and then heading overseas for the last 11 seasons of his career.  Those included one year in England, one in Germany and nine seasons in France.  He won back-to-back French championships in 2003-04 and 2004-05, with Rouen.
