Sullivan Forges New Path With Hextall | PHN+



Mike Sullivan Pittsburgh Penguins

Anything seemingly can happen when a new boss arrives. Make it a couple new bosses and have them arrive in the midst of a major league sports season, and all sorts of chaos can ensue.

Or not.

On the heels of the NHL trade deadline day, with the sole move being the acquisition of forward Jeff Carter, Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan described a seamless, beneficial relationship with the general manager who inherited him.

Sullivan has been the Penguins coach since December 2015. He’s guided the team to two Stanley Cups and a couple of first-round playoff duds, through winning streaks and losing lulls, and so many injuries it’s hard to track.

What he had not experienced was a changing of the guard above him on the organizational depth chart. Until this season.
