PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College women’s hockey team announced today [Sept. 5] 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 Cranston West High School boy’s ice hockey. 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 is from Cranston, Rhode Island and played for Cranston High School. During his time there, the Falcons won two state championships (’99 and ’01) and were state runners-up in ‘02. He played for several junior teams, including the NY Bobcats Junior A (AJHL) and the Port Hope Predators Junior A (OPJHL).
A 2012 graduate from the University of Rhode Island, Spagnoli played on the club men’s ice hockey team from 2009 to 2011. During his time there, he helped the Rams become league champions in 2011 and earn a spot at Nationals twice. Spagnoli currently serves as an emergency call-up to both the Providence Bruins and the Utica Comets of the AHL.
The Friars kick-off the 2017-18 season with an exhibition against Laurentian University on Sept. 23. The regular season opens up on Sept. 29 when Providence travels to Union College.
