Goalie Consultant Allaire Joins Maple Leafs
What Does The Addition Of Allaire Mean To The Leafs?

Brian Burke, president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Wednesday that Francois Allaire has joined the team.  As Goaltending Consultant, Allaire will work extensively with the goaltenders at all levels of the Maple Leafs’ organization.

“We consider Francois to be one of the best in the world at his craft,” said Burke. “He brings a tremendous amount of experience and I know that he will make an immediate impact with our goalies. I would like to thank the Anaheim organization for making Francois available to us.”

Allaire, 53, spent the past 13 seasons as Anaheim’s Goaltending Consultant which included the 2007 Stanley Cup championship team. His background also includes a 12-year tenure with the Montreal Canadiens prior to joining the Ducks. As Montreal’s Goaltending Coach, he was instrumental in two Stanley Cup titles (1986 and 1993), working with Hall of Famer Patrick Roy from 1984 to 1996. Allaire’s efforts also helped Montreal earn the Harry ‘Hap’ Holmes Memorial Award (AHL team with the lowest G.A.A.) on four occasions and the ‘Baz’ Bastien Memorial Award (AHL’s best goaltender) three times.

 Allaire is a graduate of the University of Sherbrooke with a degree in physical education.  He has published four books on goaltending, pre-season physical preparation and sports psychology.
