Guerin eyes advancement in new career
Guerin eyes advancement in new career

DETROIT -- Bill Guerin enjoys his job with the Pittsburgh Penguins but said he can see the corporate ladder in front of him.

Guerin is in his third season as Penguins player development coach, where he’s worked with the team’s prospects at all levels. He said it’s been a good learning experience for him and the best opportunity possible to learn how an NHL front office works.

“I’m trying not to get ahead of myself,” Guerin said Monday prior to his induction into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame. “I really want to take the next step of my career slowly. I’m trying to be a little more methodical about it and make sure I do it the right way. I want to climb the ladder eventually, but to what spot I don’t know.”

Guerin said for now he’s approaching every meeting and every situation with open eyes and an open mind, trying to learn from the people around him.

“Right now I’m in a perfect position because I have people like [Penguins general manager] Ray Shero, [assistant GM] Jason Botterill, [assistant to the GM] Tom Fitzgerald that I learn from every single day. That’s the way I want to do it; I want to learn from the ground up.”
