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 don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
