ANAHEIM, Calif. - Veteran NHL goalie Dwayne Roloson is the Anaheim Ducks' new goaltending consultant.

The Ducks announced the move Monday.

The 43-year-old Roloson played 14 NHL seasons with six teams, making an All-Star team in 2004 and appearing in 50 playoff games, including the 2006 Stanley Cup finals with the Edmonton Oilers. He last suited up with Tampa Bay for the 2011-12 season.

Roloson joined the Anaheim organization in February as a consultant for their AHL team in Norfolk.

Roloson replaces Pete Peeters, who retired from coaching last week. Peeters was Roloson's goaltending coach in Edmonton.

The Ducks have one of the NHL's top goaltending tandems with former All-Star Jonas Hiller and newcomer Viktor Fasth.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.

— Columbus Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said after their 4-3 OT win vs. Pittsburgh in Game 2, the franchise's first ever Stanley Cup Playoff victory
