After Pete Peeters retired last week, it did not take the Ducks long to figure out who their next goaltending coach would be.
On Monday Anaheim announced that Dwayne Roloson would be the new goaltending consultant. This came as no shock as Roloson was already working informally with the Ducks during Peeters tenure.
“We are happy to have Dwayne in the organization and look forward to him joining the NHL club this season,” said Ducks GM Bob Murray. “He’s a knowledgeable, hard-working coach, just as he was as a player for 14 years.”
Roloson, 43, has been a consultant with Anaheim since February, primarily focusing on the Ducks AHL affiliate in Norfolk. During his 14 year playing career he spent time with Calgary, Buffalo, Minnesota, Edmonton, New York Islanders and Tampa Bay, playing in over 600 career games.
During his time with Edmonton, Peeters was Roloson's goaltending coach.
