Jacques Martin's role with the Pittsburgh Penguins will be changing a bit as he moves upstairs.
Martin has been an assistant the last two season, primarily as a scout and adviser. He previously helped the Penguins game plan as a pre-scout, noting tendencies, strengths and weaknesses of individual players. Which was in addition to help assess the opponent's team play. Now Martin will be moving upstairs to be their "eye in the sky", and focus more on in-game adjustments. "I’m really looking forward to it," Martin said. "Being closer to the team and provide feedback, use my experience from over the years, just giving them another opinion." Martin has over 30 years of NHL coaching experience, and will no doubt be able to help give Pittsburgh a considerable edge. Tue, Jun 16, 2015 05:28:00 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins hired Jacques Martin as an assistant coach.

Martin has served as head coach of the Canadiens, Blues, Senators and Panthers. In June, he also interviewed for the Canucks' vacant head coach position, which eventually went to John Tortorella. He joins Tony Granato and Todd Reirden as assistants on Dan Bylsma's staff.

The Vancouver Canucks interviewed former Montreal Canadiens coach Jacques Martin for their vacant head coach position, according to RDS' Renaud Lavoie.

The Canucks are really digging in the crates in their search to replace Alain Vigneault. GM Mike Gillis is reportedly meeting with John Tortorella on Tuesday. The Canucks have also been connected to Dallas Eakins, who took the Edmonton job, former Sabres bench boss Lindy Ruff and Kings assistant John Stevens. Outside of Eakins, the common theme among all the candidates appears to be NHL head coaching experience, which makes sense given the veteran roster Vancouver currently has.

The Montreal Canadiens went 0-for-6 with the man advantage on Tuesday night in a 3-1 loss to Edmonton.

The unit produced just three shots and gave up a shorthanded goal in the contest. The Canadiens own the league's 25th ranked power play, so something will need to change in a hurry.

The Montreal Canadiens fired assistant coach Perry Pearn prior to Wednesday's win over Philadelphia.

"Teams make changes and it doesn't mean that Perry wasn't a good coach," said Montreal bench boss Jacques Martin. "He's been offered another job helping (general manager Pierre Gauthier) and we hope he takes it because he's a good hockey man." Martin is also on the hot seat after the Canadiens brutal start to 2011-12. Before knocking off the Flyers 5-1 on Wednesday, Montreal owned a 1-5-2 record and they hadn't won a game on home ice yet after five contests.
