TORONTO– Expect the Toronto Marlies to announce Piero Greco as their new goaltender coach for the 2013-14 season.

Greco, who played in the OHL from 1986 to 1988, will be following new Marlies head coach Steve Spott to Toronto from Kitchener, where he spent the past two seasons as the goalie coach of the OHL’s Rangers.

“In today’s game, Piero teaches a lot of modern day goaltending consisting of proper butterfly technique, rebound control, recoveries, and good agility,” it said on his website “A strong point in today’s game a goalie must learn to maintain proper composure and remain patient at all time.”

Undrafted, Greco played 12 seasons in Europe split between the top leagues in Italy, Austria and England after leaving the OHL. He also had a brief stint in the ECHL in 2001 with the Birmingham Bulls.

Prior to joining the Rangers in 2010, the 45-year-old put in eight years as the goalie coach for the Owen Sound Attack and Barrie Colts.

The Marlies will also be adding Mark Phalon to their coaching staff and he will be in charge of video.

The Canton, NY native has spent the past six seasons as Director of Hockey Operations with Northeastern University.

While Spott plans to add a new goaltender coach and video guy, he will not be making any changes to the assistant coaches.

Both Gord Dineen and Derek King will be back in the same role they held under former head coach Dallas Eakins. Dineen will be in charge of defence while King keeps his focus on the forwards.
