The Kingston Frontenacs are bringing in a one-two goaltending coaching tandem with a familiar National Hockey League ring.
Curtis Joseph, who retired in 2010 after amassing 454 victories, the fourth most in NHL history, has been hired by general manager Doug Gilmour.
Coming with the man dubbed Cujo, whose goals-against average in his four seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, is David Franco, who has coached goaltenders for more than 20 years.
“This is a chance to add two very respect-e d quality individuals and coaches to our hockey staff. They will be great additions,” general manager Doug Gilmour said in a statement.
From the Canadian Press via the Globe & Mail:
Doug Gilmour is headed back to his hometown, leaving the Toronto Maple Leafs organization to become head coach of the OHL’s Kingston Frontenacs.
The former Leafs captain had been an assistant coach with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies since August, and was the Leafs’ professional development adviser for two seasons before that.
