The Thompson Sports News


The St Louis Blues made two coaching changes following last night’s 5-3 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

 

Head coach Ken Hitchcock, as well as goalie coach Jim Corsi, were let go by General Manager Doug Armstrong.

 

Hitchcock will be replaced by former Minnesota Wild head coach Mike Yeo (who had been serving as an associate coach and was slated to take over as the bench boss next season) while Martin Brodeur and Ty Conklin will share the goalie coaching responsibilities for the remainder of the season.

 

Ken Hitchcock was on a one-year contract for the season, as he had announced that this season would be his last with the team.

 

Hitchcock is 248-123-41 in six seasons with the Blues and 781-473-111 in his 20-year NHL coaching career. He is currently one win shy of tying Al Arbour for third in all-time coaching wins.

 

Hitchcock won the Stanley Cup in 1999 as the coach of the Dallas Stars and has made the playoffs 13 of 14 seasons when he was in charge for the whole year.

 

GM Doug Armstrong says that it’s his fault that the team is off track this season and his job as well to get them back on track. He also said that Hitchcock is a Hall of Fame coach as well as one of his best friends.

 

The first game for new head coach Mike Yeo will be tomorrow when the Blues host the Maple Leafs.
