Penguins part ways with associate coach Todd Reirden

The Pittsburgh Penguins relieved associate coach Todd Reirden of his duties with Mike Sullivan’s staff on Friday.

“We are grateful to Todd for his dedication and commitment to the Penguins over two separate stints with the organization,” general manger Kyle Dubas said. “Mike Sullivan and I have spent time over the past two weeks evaluating the coaching staff, and although these decisions are never easy, we agree that this change was in the best interest of the team moving forward.”

Reirden, 52, was in his second stint on the Pittsburgh staff (2010-14 and 2021-24).

He was head coach of the Washington Capitals for two seasons from 2018-20, compiling a record of 89-46-16.

Reirden’s duties with the Penguins included presiding over the power play. Pittsburgh finished 30th in the NHL with a 15.3 percent conversion rate this season and tied with the Montreal Canadians to allow a league-high 12 short-handed goals.

The Penguins (38-32-12, 88 points) finished fifth in the Metropolitan Division and missed the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second straight season.
