The Penguins have named a new goaltender development coach and have agreed to contracts with two young goalies.

Mike Buckley, formerly a goalie coach at the University of New Hampshire and Massachusetts-Amherst, will work with goalie prospects at various levels of the Penguins organization.

Buckley, 36, also has worked with USA Hockey, the Columbus Blue Jackets, Dynamo Minsk of the Kontinental Hockey League and as president and head instructor at Goaltending Development Services, where he has trained NHL, minor-league and college goaltenders in the summer.

Two of the Penguins' goaltenders he will work with are Tristan Jarry and Matt Murray, who have agreed to three-year entry-level contracts, effective when they turn pro.

Jarry, 18, was a second-round pick in this year's NHL draft. Murray, 19, was a third-round pick in 2012.

Both are part of a Penguins squad that will be playing in a rookie tournament in London, Ontario, beginning Thursday.
