NHL Head Coaches @NHL

Below are head coaches for all 31 NHL teams. 

The coach judged to have contributed the most to his team's regular-season success wins the Jack Adams Award, which is voted on in a poll by members of the NHL Broadcasters' Association.

Columbus' John Tortorella received his second Jack Adams Award in 2016-17 for taking the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 50-24-8 record (108 points) and a playoff spot. He won the award in 2004, when he led the Tampa Bay Lightning to the Stanley Cup.
