Brodeur to lead search for new goalie coachby Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues
ST. LOUIS - Despite doing a tremendous job with Jake Allen and Carter Hutton after taking over the goalie coaching duties in February, Blues Assistant GM Martin Brodeur will not be serving as the team's goalie coach next season.
"He wasn't fired, just for the record," Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo joked during a season-ending press conference at Scottrade Center on Tuesday.
Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong said Brodeur will head up the search for the team's new goalie coach.
"He knows Jake's personality," Armstrong said. "Marty knows what makes him tick and we're going to try to find the attributes of a goalie coach that can help Jake. But we've also got (Ville) Husso coming, and we've got (Carter Hutton) here.
"We're going to get an organizational guy, but are focused on what's going to give Jake a chance to have the best success."
