Last week, the NHL announced its first 32 players elected for the 2022-23 All-Star Game which will take place in Florida in early February.
At the same time, fans were told that they had full control to vote for the 12 players who will complete the four teams that will compete for the title this year.
Today, the league announced who will be the four head coaches who will have the opportunity to lead the teams in place.
To determine the elected, the process is simple: We name the head coach of the team at the head of his division as of today.
Here are the results.
- Rod Brind’Amour (Hurricanes) will lead the Metropolitan team.
- Jim Montgomery (Bruins) will lead the Atlantic team.
- Peter DeBoer (Stars) will lead the Central team.
- Bruce Cassidy (Golden Knights) will lead the Pacific team.
Ironically, three of the four head coaches have all been fired recently as Jim Montgomery replaced Bruce Cassidy in Boston who replaced him Peter DeBoer in Vegas who currently leads the Stars who fired Montgomery.
Still special when you think about it!
Note that the result of the fan vote to determine the 12 additional players will be revealed next week.
More details will follow.
