Penguins Name Assistant Coach

The Penguins named Tony Granato as their assistant head coach today.
"We are excited to have a guy who's accomplished as much as Tony join our staff as an assistant coach," Penguins head Coach Dan Bylsma said. "In addition to his 13 years as an NHL player, he's also been a head coach and assistant coach for six years with the Avalanche, and all of that experience will make him a tremendous asset to the Penguins organization."
Granato was fired as the head coach of the Colorado Avalanche this past June along with other members of their coaching staff seemingly as an answer to the ailing organization.
