Ducks fire coach Bruce Boudreau
The Anaheim Ducks have fired head coach Bruce Boudreau, the team announced on Friday.
In five seasons as Ducks coach, Boudreau led the team to a 208–104–40 record with four consecutive Pacific Division titles, including a first-place record of 46–25 this season.
The Ducks were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs in an upset by the Nashville Predators on Wednesday. Anaheim led the series 3-2 before falling on home ice in Game 7 for the fourth year in a row.
Expected to contend for the Stanley Cup, the Ducks only got as far as the Western Conference Finals last season under Boudreau and last won the Cup in 2007.
