Senators fire coach Dave Cameron
The Ottawa Senators have fired coach Dave Cameron, the team announced Tuesday.
General manager Pierre Dorion announced the move three days after the Senators finished the season 38–35–9. Ottawa finished fifth in the Atlantic Division, failing to make the playoffs after qualifying as a wild card last year.
Dorion was promoted to general manager on Sunday.
Along with Cameron, assistant coaches Andre Tourigny and Rick Wamsley have been dismissed. Assistant coach Jason Smith will not be retained as a coach, but has been offered another position in the organization.
Cameron, 57, was promoted to head coach in December 2014, after starting in Ottawa as an assistant before the 2011 season. He posted a 70–50–17 record during his time at Ottawa’s helm.
