Former Spartan goaltender Jason Muzzatti is in his fourth season as the team's volunteer goaltending coach after joining the staff in July 2015.

Muzzatti ranks as one of the best goaltenders in MSU history. His 83 wins are second among all MSU goaltenders, while he is third in both games played at 130 and career saves with 2,928.

From 1987-91, Muzzatti helped guide the Spartans to three NCAA Tournament appearances, including the Frozen Four in 1989, two CCHA Tournament titles and two CCHA regular season championships. He was honored with MSU's Distinguished Spartan Award in April 2015.

Muzzatti was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the first round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft (21st overall) and played 16 seasons of professional hockey. The Toronto native played for four NHL teams - Calgary, Hartford, San Jose and the New York Rangers. After stints in both the IHL and AHL, Muzzatti moved to Europe where he played for eight seasons in Germany, Finland and Italy.

Muzzatti, who also has citizenship in Italy, boasts an impressive international resume. He played in four World Championships for Italy and in the 2006 Olympics for Italy in Turin, Italy. He also competed for Canada in a few international events.

After retiring as a player following the 2006-07 season, Muzzatti coached the Flint Generals of the IHL for two seasons, first as an assistant and then as head coach. In 2009-10, he coached the Generals to the IHL finals, earning league coach of the year honors.

Muzzatti co-founded the highly-successful "Just Goalies" camps in 1999 and continues to operate the camps each summer in both East Lansing and Indianapolis, Indiana. He is also active in youth hockey, having coached for the past several seasons.

Muzzatti earned his degree from MSU in finance. He and his wife, Wendy, have three children: Dryden, Sutter and Bailey.
