Bruce Racine, a native of Cornwall, Ontario, is a Goaltending Coach at the TPH Center of Excellence in St. Louis. Racine, a former St. Louis Blues goaltender, has been instructing goalies in the Heartland of Hockey for over 14 years. A Northeastern University graduate and 2001 inductee into the Northeastern University Hall of Fame, Racine played professional hockey for 15 seasons, across various leagues, including the IHL, AHL, Finnish Elite League and the National Hockey League. The Cornwall, ON native has won professional championships on two occasions, in the NHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and in the IHL as a member of the Muskegon Lumberjacks. In addition to his successes on the ice during his pro career, Bruce was a five-time recipient of the Community Service Award in both the IHL and AHL.
While Bruce’s on-ice accomplishments are certainly impressive, perhaps he is best known for his role in assisting in the development and advancement of various St. Louis area goaltenders since he retired in 2003. With a philosophy of “dream, train, achieve,” Racine is excited to play a role in the development of goaltenders at the Center of Excellence.
