NHL Coaching Carousel Continues in New York, Vegas


The NHL’s coaching carousel, which spins faster every season, took another turn on Monday, with the New York Islanders hiring a new head coach, and the Vegas Golden Knights firing theirs.

On Long Island, the Isles promoted Lane Lambert, who served under now-former coach Barry Trotz as an assistant coach this past season. In Las Vegas, the Golden Knights dismissed Peter DeBoer after three years at the helm. Both the firing of Trotz and DeBoer are relative shockers, since both had some degree of success behind the bench two years ago: DeBoer led the Golden Knights to the Conference Final in 2019-20, his first year with the franchise; Trotz had steered the Islanders to the Conference final that same season, his second with the organization.
