One-on-one: Vellucci backchecks Penguins’ prospects

I caught up with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton head coach Mike Vellucci one-on-one this week to talk about his team's performance and more as the 2019-20 AHL season remains on pause due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Vellucci is back at his family's home in Detroit, and said he's been using this period to "clean garages and basements and get things done" that he hasn't had time to do in recent years. After winning the Calder Cup last season with the Charlotte Checkers in June, then getting hired by the Penguins three weeks later, he hasn't had much down time in the past 18 months or so.
