Christopher Arnold Terreri (born November 15, 1964 in Warwick, Rhode Island) is a former goaltender for several NHL teams. Terreri was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the fifth round (85th overall) of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. He attended Providence College from 1982–1986, and was the MVP of the 1985 Hockey East postseason tournament following a 2–1 double overtime victory over top-seeded Boston College at the Providence Civic Center, and the MVP of the 1985 NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Championship, despite a 2–1 loss in the championship game to RPI at Joe Louis Arena. On March 16, 1985, Chris Terreri and Scott Gordon (playing for Boston University) both placed water bottles on the top of their nets. This would be the first time ever that goalies would place water bottles on the top of nets in a hockey game.[1]

He is a two time Stanley Cup Champion with New Jersey, winning his first title in 1995, and his second Cup in 2000. Over his career, he played for the Devils, the San Jose Sharks, Chicago Blackhawks and New York Islanders. He wore a non-traditional mask.

In 2001, he became an assistant coach of the Albany River Rats, the New Jersey Devils' former farm team. During the 2005-2006 season, Terreri made his return to pro hockey against the Hershey Bears where, in two periods, he made 27 saves and allowed four goals. It was the two-time Stanley Cup winner’s first action since the 2000-01 campaign when he skated with the New York Islanders.

In 2006 it was announced that the River Rats would change affiliations to the Carolina Hurricanes. He is currently the goaltending coach of the Devils' new farm team, the Lowell Devils.
