Penguins hire former Montreal GM as assistant coach
Monday, July 03, 2006

By Dave Molinari, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Penguins filled out coach Michel Therrien's staff today by hiring former Montreal general manager Andre Savard as an assistant coach.

Savard, 53, was Canadiens' GM from Nov. 20, 2000, through the end of the 2002-03 season, a period than included Therrien's stint as coach in Montreal.

Savard played 790 games with Boston, Buffalo and Quebec, putting up 482 points in 790 games over 12 seasons.

He moved into the Quebec front office when he retired as a player in 1985. He spent 10 seasons with the Nordiques as a scout, assistant coach, head coach in the NHL and American Hockey League and director of player development.

He joined Ottawa in 1995, putting in four years as chief scout and another an assistant coach before moving on to Motnreal in 2000. He was director of hockey personnel when he joined the Canadiens, then was promoted to GM.

Solid move by both Shero and Therrien. Now they need to sign a goalie coach. Francois Allaire is available.

Decent size, blocks shots, kills penalties well. He's the quiet guy on very successful teams. Goes around, does his job, doesn't get any accolades, but is very valuable. Also, he's from Nashville. Shero should know him well and be comfortable with his style of play. A lot of ice time and a blocked shot leader. Sounds like a guy to help Fleury this year.

Solid signing overall.

"TURKEY POINT, Ontario (AP) — Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Ryan VandenBussche was charged with assaulting three police officers during a late-night brawl and was subdued with a Taser gun and pepper spray.

VandenBussche hit one officer near the left eye, smacked another in the left ear and tried to strike a third early Monday, police said. He will be held in a Brantford jail until Thursday.

Ontario Provincial Police Constable Mark Foster says VandenBussche “apparently came to the rescue of a friend” who was being arrested.
Police say the 33-year-old player threatened the life of one officer after the fight outside a hotel in Turkey Point, southwest of Hamilton.

VandenBussche, who lives south of London, Ontario, is charged with three counts of assaulting a peace officer. He also is charged with obstructing and/or resisting a peace officer, and making a threat to cause death or bodily harm."
