Dwayne Roloson Replaces Pete Peeters as Ducks Goaltending Coach

Sup guys, I had a long, busy weekend. I was working as a field director for a baseball tournament so I wasn’t able to continue the Top 20 series or mention any other Ducks news. No like there were any news stories to begin with. Last week, Pete Peeters announced his retirement from the Ducks coaching staff. He has been the goalie coach here since 2010 and has worked with many goalies, including Jonas Hiller and Viktor Fasth. His predecessor will be former NHL journeyman Dwayne Roloson. Roloson is another goalie that has experienced the expert tutelage of Peeters, back in 2006. Roloson played for the Calgary Flames, Buffalo Sabres, Minnesota Wild, Edmonton Oilers, New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning in his 16 NHL seasons. This past season he was working as a mentor to some of the Ducks’ goaltending prospects in the minors. It seems reasonable to conclude that he will be the next goalie coach, but nothing is set in stone and there hasn’t been a formal announcement yet.
