It’s been common knowledge among us Avs followers for a while that Francois Allaire would be the new goalie coach of the team. But for whatever reason, it hadn’t been made official by the team. Now it is.

While I still don’t know how often Allaire will work with the team, he is indeed the goalie coach. The Avs say he will NOT be around the team at all times during the season. I would imagine he’ll be around a fair amount though.

Allaire has already done some work with Avs goalies Semyon Varlamov and J.S. Giguere. Earlier this month, he worked with Varlamov in Switzerland, and in Montreal he worked with Jiggy.
