Cheveldayoff says he reached out to new coach Paul Maurice Tuesday

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have fired coach Claude Noel and hired Paul Maurice as his replacement.

Winnipeg is 19-23-5 and has lost five games in a row to fall 10 points back of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Noel, hired after the Atlanta Thrashers moved to Winnipeg before the 2011-12 season, went 80-79-18.

Assistant Perry Pearn was also fired.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
