An accomplished goaltender during his playing career, Molleken becomes the first coach dedicated to helping netminders on a daily basis in more than a decade. Team scout Gilles Meloche has filled the void during past training camps and during stints during the season, but Molleken will be on hand nearly 24/7 to help the club's backstoppers.
Molleken wasted little time in giving Aubin and the other goalies on hand Monday some extra attention. While the rest of the coaching staff was running skating drills, Molleken pulled the goaltenders down to the near end of the ice to work on routine puck clears and rebounds. He spent approximately 20 minutes in each practice session going over those basics
Molleken is the closest thing possible to a full time goalie coach. Combine that with Gilles Meloche also still in the fold, and the Penguins are fine in terms of goalie coaching.
