 Rick Wamsley
 Goaltending Coach
 Born May 25, 1959 (Simcoe, ON)       

Rick Wamsley enters his third season with the Senators organization in 2012-13, having been named goaltending coach on July 28, 2010. The native of Port Dover, Ont. spent the previous four seasons working in the St. Louis Blues' organization including a stint as the interim head coach of the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen. He was hired by the Blues on July 7, 2006, as assistant/goaltending coach after spending the previous seven years as goaltending coach and professional scout with the Columbus Blue Jackets. He began his coaching career as a goaltending consultant with the Toronto Maple Leafs when he retired from professional hockey during the 1992-93 season. With the Maple Leafs he also served two seasons as assistant coach (1996-97 to 1997-98) and one season as an amateur scout (1998-99).

Originally drafted by the Montreal Canadiens with their fifth pick (58th overall) in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft, Wamsley earned a record of 204-131-46 over a 12-season career with Montreal, St. Louis, the Calgary Flames and Toronto. In 1989, he won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Flames.

Wamsley's primary responsibility is with the goaltenders at the NHL level, but he also works closely with the development of the goaltenders throughout the team's system, including prospects in the American Hockey League.

Wamsley and his wife, Lori, have three daughters, Kelly, Colleen and Megan.
