Devils Name Roland Melanson Goaltending Coach

The New Jersey Devils today named Roland Melanson to the position of goaltending coach.  Former goaltending coach Chris Terreri will remain with the organization in a capacity to be determined at a future date.  The announcement was made by Devils’ Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero.

“I want to thank Trevor Linden and the Vancouver Canucks organization for allowing Rollie to join the New Jersey Devils,” said Shero.  “Rollie is well-respected throughout the League as a teacher and his experience with various goaltenders will be very beneficial.  Additionally, I have enjoyed working with Chris the past two years and I am very happy that he will remain with the organization.  His knowledge and passion will help us continue to grow as a team.”

Melanson served as the goaltending coach of the Vancouver Canucks for six seasons from 2010-11 through 2016-17.  This past year he served in a player development capacity in Utica, as he took time off to return home to be with his family.  Before his stint in Vancouver, Melanson was an assistant coach with the Montreal Canadiens for 11 seasons, 1997-98 to 2008-09. He also served as goaltending/assistant coach with Moncton (QMJHL) from 1995 to 1997, and as a goaltending consultant with St. John (AHL) from 1993 to 1995.
