Penguins assistant Martin gets new job title

Penguins/NHL Videos

The Penguins' new regime has given Jacques Martin a new title.

Martin, a longtime NHL coach and executive, was named senior advisor of hockey operations Tuesday. The 61-year-old's duties will include scouting at the NHL level and assessing how the Penguins compare to the competition, according to a Penguins' news release.

The defensive-minded Martin was brought in as an assistant coach last season at the behest of co-owner Mario Lemieux, and he was the only nongoaltending coaching staff member to survive the offseason purge of Dan Bylsma and his top two assistants by new general manager Jim Rutherford.

Martin has 17 seasons of experience as an NHL head coach, winning the 1999 Jack Adams award for coach of the year with Ottawa in 1998-99.
