Jordan Sigalet named new goaltending coach for the Calgary Flames

CALGARY - Jordan Sigalet is the new goaltending coach for the Calgary Flames.

The 33-year-old from New Westminster, B.C., spent the last two seasons coaching Calgary's goaltending prospects with the Abbotsford Heat.

Sigalet replaces Clint Malarchuk, who parted ways with the Flames in March after three seasons.

Sigalet was the goaltending coach for the Western Hockey League's Everett Silvertips prior to joining the Flames organization.

He was a seventh-round draft pick of the Boston Bruins in 2001. He was a conference all-star twice during his three seasons at Bowling Green University.

Sigalet played three seasons in the AHL with the Providence Bruins and retired in 2009 after one season in Vienna, Austria.

He joins head coach Bob Hartley, associate coach Jacques Cloutier, assistant coach Martin Gelinas, skills coach Domenic Pittis and video coach Jamie Pringle on staff for the 2014-'15 season.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
