Devils Fire Head Coach John Hynes

New Jersey has been suffering through a poor start to this season, sitting at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division with a record of 9-13-4


NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The New Jersey Devils have fire their head coach John Hynes after four plus season at the helm of the franchise.

New Jersey has been suffering through a poor start to this season, sitting at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division with a record of 9-13-4 — despite bringing in star P.K. Subban and drafting top prospect Jack Hughes.

“John played an integral role in the development of this team in establishing a foundation for our future and we are grateful for his commitment, passion and unmatched work ethic,” said team Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero in a press release.

“John is a respected leader, developer of talent and friend which makes this decision difficult.”

Hynes ends his Devils coaching stint with a record of 150-159-45 in 354 regular season games. He led team to the 2018 postseason; New Jersey’s first trip in six years. He ranks second in team history in games coached, wins, and points.

Alain Nasreddine has been named the interim head coach. Peter Horachek — currently a pro scout for the devils — will join the staff as an assistant.
