ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues have hired former NHL goaltender Ed Belfour as a goalie consultant.

Belfour, a two-time Vezina Trophy winner who ranks third all-time among NHL goalies with 484 wins, played 18 seasons with Chicago, San Jose, Dallas, Toronto and Florida.

"Ed is one of the winningest goaltenders in National Hockey League history and we're thrilled to have him on our staff," Blues president John Davidson said in a statement Thursday.

"His knowledge of the position will be invaluable for our goaltenders in Peoria and our young goalies in our organization."

Belfour, 44, posted a 484-320-125 record with a 2.50 goals against average and 76 shutouts over 963 career games. The five-time all-star appeared in three Stanley Cup finals, winning one in 1999 with the Stars.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
