The Stony Brook hockey team has made some great strides over the past decade. They have been able to attend 12 consecutive ACHA National Tournaments, Win 6 League Championships, and bring in great talent from all of over the county. To add to this great list of accomplishments the team has added two former NHL players and twin brothers to their already strong coaching staff. After playing an illustrious professional hockey career both Peter and Chris Ferraro decided to come back home to Long Island where they grew up playing youth hockey. In 1992 Peter & Chris Ferraro were drafted by the New York Rangers and then went on to play for the University of Maine. In their first year at Maine they won the NCAA DI National Championships. In 1994 they joined the USA Hockey Olympic team and represented the U.S. in Norway. After returning from the Olympics they began their professional hockey career. During their 15 years of playing professional hockey they played for the New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, New York Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals and New Jersey Devils. When coach Garofalo was asked what it means to have Chris and Peter part of the program he said “Peter and Chris bring a tremendous amount of knowledge, and experience that has already been so valuable to both the team and myself. They really know how to connect with the players and I can already see a difference in the way they are playing. The best part about Peter and Chris is they genuinely want to help and they enjoy being part of the program. They can’t believe how competitive the team is and in fact feel a few of the guys could play at a professional level once they graduate”. Since Peter and Chris retired they opened a successful skating school called Ferraro Brothers Elite Hockey, where they teach power skating and hockey techniques.
