The Arizona Coyotes have added former NHLer Brian Rolston to their pro scouting and analytics staff.

From the release:

Rolston joins the Coyotes after concluding his 17-year NHL career in 2011-12. The Flint, Michigan native recorded 342-419-761 and 472 penalty minutes (PIM) in 1,256 NHL games with the New Jersey Devils, Colorado Avalanche, Boston Bruins, Minnesota Wild and New York Islanders.

Rolston also appeared in 77 Stanley Cup Playoff games, collecting 20-14-34 and 38 PIM. He won the Stanley Cup Championship in 1994-95 with the Devils.

The Coyotes already have Ron Rolston, Brian’s older brother, employed as a pro scout.
