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.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
