ANAHEIM -- The Anaheim Ducks announced Tuesday they will retain coach Bruce Boudreau but assistant coach Brad Lauer will not return next season.

It was the only staff change made by Anaheim general manager Bob Murray, who earlier this month was non-committal about the return of Boudreau before he completed his evaluation of players and staff.

"We’ve spent the last week evaluating everything from top to bottom, including all player and staff performance," Murray said in a statement. "This process is something I believe is essential each and every year, no matter the results of the season. We’ve decided to refocus and change the responsibilities of one of the assistant coach positions. We want to thank Brad Lauer for his hard work and dedication, and we wish him the best of luck in the future."

Detroit Red Wings hire Jeff Blashill as coach

Tuesday, 06.09.2015 / 3:05 PM / News

Paul Harris - Correspondent

DETROIT -- There was never another candidate to become Detroit Red Wings coach.

General manager Ken Holland decided last year that Jeff Blashill would be the choice if Mike Babcock chose to go elsewhere.

And Blashill, 41, was introduced as Red Wings coach Tuesday at a press conference at Joe Louis Arena. He is the NHL's second-youngest coach behind John Hynes of the New Jersey Devils, who was hired this month.

"I'm going on my instinct," Holland said. "He's a great young coach who is ready to coach in the NHL."

Blashill's contract is for four years, Holland said. Blashill replaces Babcock, who was hired to coach the Toronto Maple Leafs on May 20 after 10 seasons with Detroit.
