Colts net new goalie coach


The Barrie Colts have a new crease boss.

Dan Cloutier, who played 10 seasons in the National Hockey League with the New York Rangers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Vancouver Canucks and the Los Angeles Kings, is the Colts new goaltending coach for the upcoming 2010-2011 season.

Cloutier, 34, replaces Piero Greco, who left the club after last season to sign a three-year deal in the same position with the Kitchener Rangers.

Cloutier played his junior hockey with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and the Guelph Storm before being drafted by the Rangers in the first round of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft.

Cloutier, a native of Mont-Laurier, Que who now lives in nearby Innisfil, played nine games with the Kings in 2007-08 and just three games with the AHL's Rockford IceHogs last year.

Injuries finally forced him to retire from playing.
