On the list of surprising coaching moves this season, Wednesday morning’s news might be the most shocking.
The Vegas Golden Knights fired head coach Gerard Gallant and assistant coach Mike Kelly. Veteran coach Pete DeBoer has been named the new head coach in Vegas.
Gallant was the first head coach in the history of the Vegas franchise. The Knights started 118-75-20 in 2.5 years under Gallant, who was also successful in Florida before a ridiculous firing by the Panthers.
Sincerely, there is absolutely no excuse for the Chicago Blackhawks to not reach out to Gallant about coaching the team.
