Ken Hitchcock spent six seasons with the St. Louis bench, with a 248-124-41 record, second all-time in Blues wins... but January wasn't kind to Hitchcock and the Blues, losing five of their last six games and going 5-8 in January.
Former Wild head coach Mike Yeo was hired as an assitant coach before the season, with his role moving to head coach next next year after Hitchcock's retirement, but it looks like he'll be stepping up sooner than expected! The Wild went 173-132-44 and reached the playoffs three time with Yeo but as you may remember, fired him in the middle of last season.
Best of luck to Mike Yeo in his new role! More on the story here.
