Scott Gomez (@scottycgomez) 🇺🇸 is joining the Surrey Eagles (BCHL) 🇨🇦 as an assistant coach.

Gomez, 43, played 1,079 games in the NHL from 1999-2016 with New Jersey, Montreal, New York (R), San Jose, Florida, New Jersey, St. Louis, and Ottawa, scoring 181 goals and 756 points.

Gomez has some experience coaching, working as an assistant coach with the New York Islanders (NHL) 🇺🇸 for two seasons from 2017-2019.

As a Junior A team in Surrey, BC, Canada, the Surrey Eagles are coached by Cam Keith and Scott Gomez.

With 1,079 games played in the NHL, Gomez has a huge impact on the talent on the team, with stops in San Jose, New Jersey, Florida, Montreal and Ottawa, and 181 goals in 756 games throughout his career.

The last time Gomez coached in the NHL was with the New York Islanders from 2017 to 2019.
