Longtime NHL goalie Dwayne Roloson hired as Anaheim Ducks' new goaltending consultant

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.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
