AS per
PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Penguins have hired Tony Granato as an assistant coach.
The 45-year-old spent the last six seasons as an assistant and head
coach of the Avalanche but was fired in June after Colorado finished
with a franchise-worst record since moving to Denver in 1995.

`We are excited to have a guy who's accomplished as much as Tony
join our staff as an assistant coach,' Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma
said in a release.

`In addition to his 13 years as an NHL player, he's also been a head
coach and assistant coach for six years with the Avalanche, and all of
that experience will make him a tremendous asset to the Penguins

Granato complied a 215-104-17-16 career record with Colorado, leading them to a Northwest Division title in 2003.
As a player he spent 13 seasons in the NHL with the New York
Rangers, Los Angeles and San Jose and posted 248 goals and 244 assists
in 773 career games.
