The Montreal Canadiens announced Monday that the club has parted ways with goaltending coach Pierre Groulx.

"I want to sincerely thank Pierre Groulx for his contribution to the Canadiens' organization over the past four years," said Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin in a statement.

"Pierre is a coach with a strong work ethic, a true professional who largely contributed to the development of our goaltenders. Unfortunately, we have to make the difficult decision today not to renew his contract with the team. I want to wish Pierre the best of luck with the pursuit of his career."

Appointed goaltending coach in 2009, Groulx worked for four seasons with the Canadiens after spending the previous four years with the Florida Panthers.

Groulx was responsible for working with the Canadiens goaltenders as well as supervising the progress of the goaltenders with the Hamilton Bulldogs and ECHL's Wheeling Nailers.
