Predators fire John Hynes, hire Andrew Brunette as head coach
According to multiple reports Andrew Brunette will be the new head coach in Nashville next season.
Hynes posted a 247-134-95 record in four seasons as Nashville's head coach. He led the team to the playoffs three times, but the Predators lost in the first round on each occasion.
Brunette led the Florida Panthers to a 51-18-6 record on an interim basis in 2021-22. His work for the Panthers earned him a Jack Adams Award finalist position, but he was not retained in Florida and served as an associate coach for the New Jersey Devils this past season.
Brunette had a 16-year NHL career and served in a variety of roles with the Minnesota Wild from assistant coach to assistant general manager between 2014 and 2019.
