UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -Mike Dunham ended his 10-year playing career Monday to become the goaltending coach of the New York Islanders.
``I'm very proud of my career and really enjoyed playing my final year on Long Island,'' the former netminder said in a release. ``I'm very appreciative of (coach) Ted (Nolan) giving me this opportunity to be part of his coaching staff and work with all of the goaltenders in our system. I'm really looking forward to beginning my coaching career.''
The 35-year-old Dunham appeared in 19 games with the Islanders last season, going 4-10-3 with a 3.74 goals-against average and .889 save percentage.
``Mike had an outstanding NHL career and was very well-regarded for his work ethic and his leadership,'' Nolan said. ``I'm very happy to have all of his experience on our coaching staff.''
Dunham also played for the Devils, Predators, Rangers and Thrashers, compiling a 141-178-44 career record, 2.74 goals-against average and .908 save percentage. He played for the U.S. at three Olympics.
