Steve Briere is the new goaltending coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs, the club announced today.

From the press release:

Briere joins the Leafs after serving as the owner and head instructor of Canadian Professional Goalie Schools in addition to his role as goaltender coach with several Junior level teams (the NAHL’s Topeka Roadrunners as well as the USHL’s Fargo Force and Des Moines Buccaneers).

Toronto fired its most recent goalie coach, Rick St. Croix, in April as part of a major housecleaning. St. Croix had taken over for Francois Allaire, who quit in 2012.

The Leafs also announced today that Ari Vuori has been named the director of European scouting.
