Apparently, neither do his bosses.
The Pittsburgh Penguins signed their two-time Stanley Cup-winning head coach to a contract extension on Tuesday that runs through the 2026-27 season, a pact that doubled as a vote of confidence in the club's iconic core of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang and the fiery Sullivan's ability to lead them.
