Hurricanes Hire Marcoux as Goaltending Coach
He coached the Vezina Trophy winner Miikka Kiprusoff in Calgary.
RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has hired David Marcoux (mahr-COO) as its new goaltending coach.

“David has 25 years of experience as a goalie coach, and his results speak for themselves,” said Francis. “This completes what we feel is a very strong and experienced coaching staff.”

Marcoux spent six years as the goaltending coach for the Calgary Flames between 2003 and 2009, helping Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff become a Vezina Trophy and Williams Jennings Trophy winner, as well as a Hart Trophy finalist in 2005-06. The Flames originally acquired Kiprusoff in November 2003 from San Jose, where he was competing for the backup goaltender position. Working with Marcoux and the Flames, Kiprusoff became a Vezina Trophy finalist that same season, leading the Flames to the Western Conference championship. In addition to Kiprusoff, Marcoux’s time with the Flames included experience working with current Hurricanes netminder Cam Ward, as the Hurricanes and Flames shared the AHL affiliate Lowell Lock Monsters during the 2004-05 NHL work stoppage.

Prior to joining Calgary, Marcoux spent the previous 12 years guiding netminders at a sports academy (Profil Hockey Cap-Jeunesse) in St-Jerome, Que. He also held the goaltender coach position for the Hull Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) from 1997-2001, helping Hull twice reach the league finals.

A graduate of the University of Sherbrooke with a Bachelor’s Degree in Science (Physical Education), Marcoux earned a Masters from the University of Montreal in 1997. Most recently, Marcoux has run his own goaltending camps (dmsg.ca) in Sherbrooke, Que., Hawkesbury, Ont., and Calgary, and has worked as a goaltending consultant for Hockey Canada.
