Pittsburgh Penguins goaltending coach Gilles Meloche has reportedly stepped down and will now serve as a special assignment scout for the organization.
Completing his 27th season with the Pens, Meloche has been the team’s goalie coach since 2006.
Due to a handful of atrocious performances by one Marc-Andre Fleury over the past two seasons, Meloche probably made a wise decision to pass the baton.
“Gilles believes it’s the right time in his life and his career to move back into a scouting role. He has been an invaluable member of this organization since arriving in Pittsburgh as a player in 1985.”
There is no replacement for Meloche at this time.
