Carter brings wealth of coaching knowledge, experience to BCHL
Duncan, BC – The Cowichan Valley Capitals have announced that Chris Carter has been hired as the team’s goaltending coach.
Carter, who’s originally from St. John’s, Newfoundland, brings a decade of experience coaching goalies of all ages and skill levels at Great Saves Goaltending, a program he’s owned and operated since 2007. In that time, he’s also been a goalie coach and technical director for the St. John’s Junior Hockey League, Newfoundland & Labrador High Performance Program, and for minor hockey teams aged throughout.
Carter also spent four seasons as a head coach in minor midget – in those years he led his teams to two league championships and two runner-up finishes.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the Capitals as their goaltending coach. It’s a great opportunity for me to join a great franchise and coaching staff and further pursue my passion for coaching goaltenders,” Carter said in a statement. “It’s an honor to be part of the team and I look forward to achieving some positive results and building new relationships in hockey.”
Last season, Carter was the goaltending coach for the Avalon Capitals of the St. John’s Junior Hockey League and for the TriPen Osprey of the Newfoundland Major Midget League. He was also an assistant coach/ goaltending coach with an Atom-aged team in the Mount Pearl Minor Hockey Association in St. John’s.
After relocating from Newfoundland, Carter expects to be with the team at the BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack this week.
