Ron Francis, General Manager and Executive Vice President of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the club has hired David Marcoux as their new goalie coach.
From 2003-2009, Marcoux was the goalie coach for Miikka Kiprusoff and the Calgary Flames. Kiprusoff won a Vezina Trophy and a William Jennings Trophy under the coaching of David Marcoux. He was a Hart Trophy finalist in the 2005-2006 season.
David Marcoux has experience with Carolina Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward. In the 2004-2005 season, the Carolina Hurricanes and Calgary Flames shared an AHL affiliate team, the Lowell Lock Monsters. David Marcoux worked with Cam Ward that season as he went on to a 27-17-3 season with a .937 save percentage and a 1.99 goals against average.
