It was just a rumor a couple days ago but it’s official now.

Anaheim has hired recently retired NHL veteran Dwayne Roloson to be the team’s new goalie consultant. Roloson has been with the Ducks since mid-February working with their minor league goalies in Norfolk. With former goalie coach Pete Peeters retiring from the position last week, it opened the door for Roloson’s arrival.

Roloson played 14 seasons in the NHL with six different teams and saw his greatest success with the Edmonton Oilers in 2006 helping them reach the Stanley Cup finals that season. He finished his career with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2012 and took them to within a game of the finals in 2011.

Now he’ll get to work with Jonas Hiller and Viktor Fasth on a daily basis and that must be a nice perk to have with two stellar netminders to coach.

    So is he the one that gets fired when Fasth inevitably regresses?
