The Providence women’s team announced Tuesday that Joe Spagnoli will serve as the team’s volunteer goalie coach for the 2017-18 season.
Spagnoli has served as a private goalie instructor since 2000. Additionally, he is a part-time goalie coach for the Cranston West High School boys hockey team. In his time with the program since 2015, he has coached one All-State and two All-Division goalies. In 2017, Spagnoli was a goalie instructor at Ocean State Hockey camps. Since 2016, he has been a Rhode Island Hockey Academy Instructor as well.
Spagnoli played for Cranston High School. During his time there, the Falcons won two state championships (1999 and 2001) and were state runners-up in ’02.
A 2012 graduate of Rhode Island, Spagnoli played on the club team there from 2009 to 2011 and helped the Rams become league champions in 2011 and earn a spot at nationals twice.
He currently serves as an emergency call-up to both the Providence Bruins and the Utica Comets of the AHL.
