NHL: General News & Discussion

Recommended Posts



The November NHL coaching carousel continues.  St. Louis head coach Mike Yeo was let go.  Can't say this is too surprising - STL was below Chicago when Quenneville was fired earlier in the month (and is still below CHI in the standings).


Edmonton also let go their head coach - which was also not a huge surprise as the Oilers are off to a poor start after missing the playoffs last season.  What was a surprise was Edmonton's replacement - 66-year-old Ken Hitchcock, who "retired" from coaching last year.  If Edmonton is concerned about wasting prime years of the generational talent of reigning leading league scorer Connor McDavid, I don't know if bringing in a coach who perfected the neutral-zone trap in the 90's is the solution!
