The Ducks announced today they have named Dwayne Roloson as the team's goaltending consultant. Roloson will assume the responsibilities of Goaltending Consultant Pete Peeters, who retired from coaching on June 5, 2013.
“We are happy to have Dwayne in the organization and look forward to him joining the NHL club this season,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “He’s a knowledgeable, hard-working coach, just as he was as a player for 14 years.”
Roloson, 43 (10/12/69), joined the Ducks organization on Feb. 13, 2013 in a consultant role focused on its American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate in Norfolk. Roloson came to Anaheim following a 14-year NHL playing career with Calgary (1996-98), Buffalo (1998-00), Minnesota (2001-06), Edmonton (2005-09), New York Islanders (2009-11) and Tampa Bay (2010-12). A 2004 NHL All-Star, Roloson appeared in 606 career NHL games, posting a 227-257-42 record with 29 shutouts, a 2.72 goals-against average (GAA) and .908 save percentage (SV%). Among all-time NHL goaltending leaders, Roloson ranks 58th in wins, tied for 52nd in shutouts, tied for 40th in appearances and 42nd in time-on-ice (34,296).
Signed by Calgary as an undrafted free agent on July 4, 1994, Roloson backstoped the Edmonton Oilers to a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2006 under the guidance of then-goaltending coach Pete Peeters. He appeared in 50 career Stanley Cup Playoff games with Buffalo (1999), Minnesota (2003), Edmonton (2006), and Tampa Bay (2011), helping his teams win seven playoff series with a 28-18 record, two shutouts, a 2.54 GAA and .918 SV%.
A native of Simcoe, Ontario, Roloson guided Canada to a gold medal at the 2007 IIHF World Championship in Moscow, going 4-0-0 with a 2.50 GAA and .911 SV% in four games. At the collegiate level, Roloson was a Hobey Baker Award nominee and NCAA All-American at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, posting a 51-44-9 record in 106 career games from 1990-94.
