The Penguins have named Andy Chiodo as the team's new goaltending coach, replacing Mike Buckley, who has been relieved of his duties.

Buckley was the team’s goaltending coach from 2017 through 2021.

“Andy has done a terrific job mentoring our young goaltenders. In addition to on- and off-ice training, he emphasizes the importance of life habits and mental approach to the game,” said Penguins general manager Ron Hextall. “We know Andy will be a great addition to the coaching staff. The Penguins are grateful to Mike Buckley for his contributions to the team and wish him and his family the best going forward.”

Chiodo spent the last three seasons as the Penguins’ goaltending development coach. In his previous role, he was responsible for working with young goaltending prospects throughout the Penguins organization in Europe, the minor leagues, juniors and college hockey.

Chiodo previously was a goaltending coach with the Ottawa 67’s of the Ontario Hockey League.
