The Penguins have hired Mike Johnston to be their new head coach, Rob Rossi reports. The team will hold a press conference at Consol Energy Center at 12:30 p.m. to introduce him.
Here’s Johnston’s official page on the Portland Winterhawks site.
I’ll have a column off this, obviously, but this also will be Topic A on my TribLIVE Radio show today, 2-3 p.m. Call me at 412-320-7925. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can’t call, but I’d rather hear from you.
My initial thoughts on this hire will be shared on the show. I could share what I think at this very second, but I’d much rather attend the press conference and gather more information first. That’s always fairest.
