It appears that the Vancouver Canucks have made some minor changes to their coaching staff, and in doing so have brought back a familiar face to the organization.

According to a report from TSN's Frank Seravalli the Canucks have brought back former long time goaltgender Dan Cloutier, and furthermore Cloutier will takje over as the team's goaltending coach with Roland Melanson continuing to work with goaltenders as the development coach.

Cloutier will best be remembered as the Canuck's starter from 2000 ti 2004 where he had moderate success, and obviously the hope here will be that his skills translate better as a coach than they did as a player for the organization.
