Kirk McLean Hired As Goaltender Consultant

Terry Frei is reporting that the Colorado Avalanche have hired Kirk McLean to be their goalie consultant. McLean, who spent parts of 11 seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, replaces Jocelyn Thibault who left after last season. McLean might be a good mentor for the workhorse Craig Anderson as he once led the league in shots against and games played.

Like Thibault and Jeff Hackett before him, McLean will be another part-time coach as, according to Frei, he will only be with the team "periodically."
