According to Sportsnet network journalist Elliotte Friedman, the former National Hockey League goalkeeper is on his way out after spending the last six years with the Habs. Hired in 2016 as a professional scout, Burke was named goalkeeper director on March 2, 2021.
The Las Vegas Sun reported on Saturday that Knights goalie coach Mike Rosati recently met with new franchise head coach Bruce Cassidy. Rosati has held this position for the past two seasons.
After his 18-season career, Burke joined the Arizona Coyotes in 2009 as a goalie coach until 2015. He also served as director of player development and assistant general manager with desert training.
The Canadian could have several positions to fill before the start of the next season. Assistant coach and head of defensemen Luke Richardson has reportedly been named head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks, multiple sources have reported.
