After four years as the Anaheim Ducks’ goaltending consultant, Pete Peeters is calling it a career.
Peeters, 55, is set to retire, according to Eric Stephens of the OC Register.
The longtime NHL netminder — he captured the Vezina Trophy with Boston in 1983 — has been coaching goalies for nearly 20 years.
He began with the Phoenix/Winnipeg organization before moving onto Edmonton, where he was instrumental in coaching Dwayne Roloson as he backstopped the Oilers to the 2006 Stanley Cup finals.
Stephens reports the Ducks plan on hiring a new goalie coach to replace Peeters and might actually turn to Roloson, who they already have on staff working with their younger prospects.
