Ducks promote Dwayne Roloson to goalie coach

In another example of the newly discovered organizational depth achieved under GM Bob Murray, our Ducks have announced the promotion of Dwayne Roloson from Norfolk Admirals of the AHL to goaltending consultant with the Anaheim Ducks of the NHL.

Rollie the Goalie as he was known during his 14 year playing career will replace the recently retired Pete Peeters. The pair have a history dating back to the Oilers 2006 Stanley Cup Final appearance. Roloson was the Oilers starting goalie and Peeters his coach.

Roloson joined our Ducks organization on February 13, 2013 where he became familiar with Fredrik Andersen who beat out Sergei Bobkov for the No. 1 job in Norfolk. He doesn’t have a history with either Ducks goalie, Jonas Hiller or Viktor Fasth.

During his playing career Rollie earned a reputation for clutch playoff performances. In addition to back stopping the Oilers to the SCF in 2006, Rollie was credited with carrying the Tampa Bay Lightning to the ECF in 2011. He ended his career with a playoff record of 28-18, 2 shutouts, 2.54 GAA and a .918 SP.

I’ll speculate that Pete Peeters had something to do with choosing Roloson as his successor. This is more respect than our Ducks showed Francois Allaire when he left to join Brian Burke in Toronto.
