Penguins Make Coaching Change

In a somewhat shocking move, the Penguins organization has fired the Wilkes Barre - Scranton coach Glen Patrick.

I remember talking to him early last fall during one of the PSU icers games and interviewing him on my station WRSC. He spoke about developing talent to the NHL level - something that he and the organization was always blamed for. Glen convinced me that he did have a lot of hockey knowledge and could be a very competent coach elsewhere.
"After reviewing all of the circumstances, we decided it was time to make a change,"
said Penguins GM and brother Craig Patrick.

Glenn Patrick compiled a record of 115-152-38-15 in four seasons with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. His son Curtis played for PSU and Team USA in the World University Games in Italy earlier this year.
