From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Richard James Wamsley (b. May 25, 1959 in Simcoe, Ontario) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who played in the National Hockey League for the Montreal Canadiens, St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in 1979, Wamsley played with the Nova Scotia Voyageurs before being called up to the big team. He spent three successful seasons in Montreal before being shipped to St. Louis in exchange for the draft picks which the Canadiens would ultimately use to select future stars Shayne Corson and Stephane Richer.

Wamsley and Denis Herron shared the William M. Jennings Trophy with Montreal in 1982, and Wamsley was a member of the Stanley Cup champion Calgary Flames in 1989. He is currently the head coach for the Peoria Rivermen. He previously served as a goaltending coach for the St. Louis Blues and pro scout and goaltending coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Prior to joining the Blue Jackets, Wamsley spent six seasons as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs organization. While in Toronto, he served as a pro and amateur scout in 1998-99 and was an assistant coach under Pat Burns from 1996-98. Wamsley joined the Leafs' organization as a goaltending consultant immediately after retiring from playing following the the 1992-93 season.
