Jacques Martin Named Penguins “Senior Advisor of Hockey Operations”

The Penguins announced today that Jacques Martin has been named “Senior Advisor of Hockey Operations.”

“His duties will include monitoring NHL games, with an emphasis on Eastern Conference teams, assessing how the Penguins compare to the competition. He will report his information to general manager Jim Rutherford.”

We find it weird that Martin is being given an office role with the team considering he didn’t play for the Penguins in the 1990s.
