PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan is taking a leave of absence to be with his family following the death of his father Connor Brown Jersey , George.
The Penguins said George Sullivan, 81 Kyle Turris Jersey , passed away on Saturday in Scituate, Massachusetts.
Assistant coach Jacques Martin will run the day-to-day operations of the coaching staff while Sullivan is away.
“We’ll handle the load until he gets back Mark Giordano Jersey ,” assistant coach Mark Recchi said. “It’s a very tough time for him. We’ll make sure things run the way he would run.”
George Sullivan visited his son occasionally after Mike Sullivan took over as Penguins coach in December, 2015 and spent copious amounts of time with the club during Pittsburgh’s run to consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017.
Fullback James Develin wasn’t the only role player to land a contract extension with the Patriots on Thursday.
Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports that the team has agreed to a four-year extension with long snapper Joe Cardona. Word of Develin’s聽two-year deal聽surfaced earlier in the day.
Cardona was a 2015 fifth-round pick out of the Naval Academy and had his active service requirement delayed under a policy that was rescinded by the Department of Defense last year. That change is not retroactively applied to Cardona or other players granted an exemption.
He has played in every game for the Patriots since being drafted. Thursday’s extension provides him with a chance to keep that streak alive for many years to come.
