The St. Louis Blues President named former NHL goaltender Ed Belfour as a goaltending consultant on Thursday.

''Ed is one of the winningest goaltenders in National Hockey League history and we're thrilled to have him on our staff,'' said Blues President John Davidson. ''His knowledge of the position will be invaluable for our goaltenders in Peoria and our young goalies in our organization.''

The two-time Vezina Trophy winner played 18 seasons in the NHL with Chicago, San Jose, Dallas, Toronto and Florida, backstopping 963 games, posting a 484-320-125 record, a 2.50 goals against average and 76 shutouts. He currently ranks third all-time among NHL goaltenders with 484 wins, tied for ninth with 76 shutouts and tied for fourth with 88 playoff wins.

During his first full NHL season with Chicago in 1990-91, he won the Calder Trophy as Outstanding Rookie, the Vezina Trophy for the Best Goaltender and the William M. Jennings Trophy for fewest goals against. In addition, he was nominated for the Hart Memorial Trophy as Most Valuable Player.

Belfour appeared in three Stanley Cup Finals and won the Stanley Cup in 1999.

Veteran goalie wants to play again

For any team seeking a goaltending upgrade, Ed Belfour is tanned, rested and ready.

The future Hall of Famer, who turned 44 last April, is working out near his suburban Dallas home as he seeks a return to the NHL. Agent Ron Salcer confirmed that his long-time client has asked him to contact clubs to determine any interest level.

Wow. To a team that probably has the most viable goaltending prospects, that is putting a lot of faith in Eddie.
