(Calm down, calm down. This isn't a nightmare or worse case scenario realized. These are just two examples of whom Mike Buckley's worked with. Take a deep breath and read on. Don't worry, other people got scared too.)
The Pittsburgh Penguins and general manager Ray Shero announced today the hiring of Mike Buckley as the organization's new goalie development coach. His responsibilities will be the maintaining of positive growth and rising skill of the Penguins goalie prospects. The netminder development position was vacated by Mike Bales when he received a promotion to be the Penguins goaltender coach on August 19th.
Mike Buckley, 36 years old and from Haverhill, Massachusetts, is no stranger to coaching. He spent last year at the University of New Hampshire and the previous five at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst as a goalie coach. He's also played that role for USA Hockey. Buckley has assisted the Columbus Blue Jackets and the KHL's Dynamo Minsk with their goaltending needs as a consultant. Since 2004, he's run the hockey training center Goaltending Development Services Inc. Notable alums include Tuukka Rask and Jonathan Quick (both are pretty good, yes?). Here's a link to GDS's site.
