Mike Johnston wasn't the only coach the Penguins introduced today.

Former Penguins right winger Rick Tocchet was added to Johnston's staff as an assistant.

Tocchet, who was a head coach in Tampa, played on the Penguins' 1992 Stanley Cup winning team.

Johnston said he plans to hire one more assistant coach.

Goalie coach Mike Bales and video coordinator Andy Saucier will retain their positions, while assistant coach Jacques Martin will remain in the organization in an unspecified capacity.

Assistant coaches Todd Reirden and Tony Granato will not have places on Johnston's staff.
