Pittsburgh Penguins Name Jacques Martin Special Assistant To The Head Coach

Jacques Martin, 62, will join head coach Mike Johnston’s staff under the new title of special assistant to the head coach. His primary role will be to analyze games from the media level and provide instant observations to Johnston and his staff.
