The Florida Panthers have released interim coach Peter Horachek, electing to part ways with the coach who led the team for the majority of this past season. General manager Dale Tallon said via the team's Twitter account that the Panthers ". . . will immediately begin an extensive search for a new and experienced coach for our franchise."

Horachek was coaching the franchise's top farm team in San Antonio in November when he was elevated to interim head coach by Tallon following the firing of head coach Kevin Dineen and assistants Gord Murphy and Craig Ramsay.

HAMILTON: Blues faces serious questions

The team finished 29-45-8 and 66 points -- the NHL's second fewest point total.
