Report: Laviolette Could Be In Play For Rangers, Blue Jackets Head Coach Jobs
Peter Laviolette has never really been out of work since becoming an NHL head coach in 2001, and it looks like that streak will continue on.
Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported Wednesday that Laviolette “could be on the radar” for the openings in Columbus and New York.
Laviolette, 58, coached the Washington Capitals for three seasons, but quickly found himself out of a job following a disappointing 2022-23 season — one that saw the Capitals miss the playoffs for the first time in nine seasons.
Laviolette, who also served as head coach of the New York Islanders, Carolina Hurricanes, Philadelphia Flyers and Nashville Predators, has appeared in the Stanley Cup Final three times, winning once. He has a career record of 752-503-25.
