NEW YORK — Long-time coach Benoit Allaire has been named the New York Rangers’ director of goaltending.

This is one of several moves by general manager Chris Drury to reshape the hockey operations department.

Drury on Thursday also promoted Jeff Malcolm to Hartford Wolf Pack goaltending coach, named Jean-Ian Filiatrault as the goaltending consultant in the player development department and hired Matt Hunwick to work in the hockey operations’ player development department.

Allaire will continue to be based in New York and will remain the Rangers’ head goaltending coach. He has been on the coaching staff the last 17 seasons.
