Dwayne Roloson is a Canadian goalie on the New York Islanders.

Roloson was undrafted after graduating from U-Mass Lowell, but signed with Calgary in 1994. He played only 70 games with Calgary from 1994 through 1998, before being traded to Buffalo as a backup. He signed with Minnesota in 2001, where he got his first real chance to be a starter, with his best season coming in 2002-03, where he won 23 of 50 starts, posting a 2.00 GAA. He was traded to Edmonton in 2006, and helped lead the Oilers to the Stanley Cup Finals in the same season. Unfortunately, he was injured in the first game of the Finals, and was unable to participate in the series again. Roloson remained the starter in Edmonton for the next few seasons, although he played only 43 games in 2007-08. In 2008-09, despite management bringing in two more goalies to vie for the starting job, Roloson kept his spot, starting 63 games and winning 28. He posted a solid 2.77 GAA and earned a spot on the Canadian national team for the 2009 World Championships. Roloson was signed during the 2009 offseason to provide a solid backup for Rick DiPietro in New York.

Roloson played for Team Canada at the 1995 World Junior Championships and won a gold medal at the 2007 World Hockey Championships. He also won a silver medal as the starter at the 2009 World Championships.
