Krefeld is looking for a new trainer
In the next season the Krefeld Penguins will no longer train the former coach Rick Adduono. The Canadian will only work as a scout and consultant.
The Krefeld Penguins are looking for a new coach for next season in the German Ice Hockey League (DEL).
On Saturday, the last of the standings announced that former head coach Rick Adduono will in future only work for the club as a scout and consultant.
“After all these years as head coach, I think it’s time for a change behind the line,” said the 63-year-old Canadian.
Adduono had already trained the penguins from 2009 to 2015 and led them into the play-offs four times during this time. In December 2016 he returned to Krefeld, but the old successes did not return.
“We will bring about a change,” said Wolfgang Schulz, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. The 2003 champion wants to present a new coach by mid-April.
