Springfield, Mass. - The Springfield Falcons, AHL affiliate of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, announced Friday that Manny Legace will serve as a goalie consultant throughout the 2013-14 season. Legace, who appeared in 115 games over five different seasons with the Falcons, holds the franchise record for career wins (64) and for goals against average in a single season (2.27 in 1995-96).


As a member of the Falcons during the 1995-96 season, Legace won the Baz Bastien Trophy, which recognizes the best goaltender in the American Hockey League. The same year, he was also named an AHL All-Star.


Legace played 18 seasons at the professional level, including 365 games in the National Hockey League. The Toronto, Ontario native won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Detroit Red Wings in 2001-02 and was named an NHL All-Star during the 2007-08 season with the St. Louis Blues.


Legace joins a coaching staff led by Head Coach Brad Larsen, who is returning for his second year behind the bench for Springfield. Assistant coaches Jared Bednar and Nolan Pratt will return in 2013-14 as well.
