Pierre Groulx is no longer the goaltending coach in Montreal, the Canadiens announced today.
“I want to sincerely thank Pierre Groulx for his contribution to the Canadiens’ organization over the past four years. Pierre is a coach with a strong work ethic, a true professional who largely contributed to the development of our goaltenders. Unfortunately, we have to make the difficult decision today not to renew his contract with the team. I want to wish Pierre the best of luck with the pursuit of his career,” said Habs general manager Marc Bergevin in a release.
It’s not clear why exactly the Canadiens chose to part ways with Groulx; however, it has to be noted that Carey Price struggled badly down the stretch and into the playoffs, where he was ultimately injured and replaced by Peter Budaj.
No replacement for Groulx has been named.
