KELOWNA – Team Canada Executive Director Wayne Gretzky announced on Friday that Dallas Stars assistant coach Andy Mooghas been named goaltending consultant for Canada’s entry at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.

Moog will assist Canada’s management and coaching staff with preparations and scouting related to goaltending.

“We’re pleased to welcome Andy Moog aboard as our goaltending coach for the 2006 Olympics,” said Gretzky. “We’re very familiar with his coaching abilities as he has done extremely well in his role as goaltending coach for the Dallas Stars. We expect that he’ll bring the same level of success and professionalism to Team Canada.”

Moog, 44, served as goaltending consultant for Team Canada at the 2002 Olympic Games and both the 20 World Junior Championships and World Championships. The native of Penticton, British Columbia, played for Team Canada at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary and posted a perfect record of 4-0 and a 2.25 goals-against-average. 

In 2005-06, Moog will enter his fourth year with the Dallas Stars as the team's assistant coach and goaltending coach. He works closely with Dallas’ management in the areas of goaltender coaching and advising, pro scouting and consulting in goaltender personnel decisions.

Boasting 18 years of NHL experience with Edmonton, Boston, Dallas and Montreal, Moog retired following the 1997-98 season after appearing in 713 career NHL games. Over his career, Moog posted a 372-209-88 record with a 3.13 goals-against-average. His 372 career wins places him 12th all-time in wins by a goaltender.

A three-time Stanley Cup winner with Edmonton (1984, 1985, 1987), Moog appeared in 175 games with the Stars from 1993-1997, collecting a 75-64-26 mark with a 2.74 goals-against-average. Among Stars' goaltending franchise-leaders, Moog currently ranks fifth in goals-against-average (2.74), tied for fifth in shutouts (8), sixth in games played (175) and sixth in wins (75).

Appearing in the Stanley Cup Finals six times, Moog was a member of three Presidents' Trophy clubs (1986, 1987, 1990) and shared the Jennings Trophy for the fewest goals allowed in the NHL with Reggie Lemelin in Boston in 1990.
