Edmonton Oilers| Ken Hitchcock| Los Angeles Kings| Peter Chiarelli| San Jose Sharks| Todd McLellan| Willie Desjardins, April 7, 2019 at 1:00 pm CDT | by Holger Stolzenberg 3 Comments. With the Vancouver Canucks franchise losing value during a period where the NHL as a whole is on the rise, the team parted ways on Wednesday with its president of hockey operations and franchise icon, Trevor Linden. “Today we thanked Willie Desjardins for his effort and dedication while serving as our interim head coach,” said Los Angeles Kings general Rob Blake, in a statement. Desjardins coached the Tigers from 2002-10 before taking his first coaching role in the NHL. In fact, the team’s lack of scoring can’t be placed on just one person as the entire team’s offense has been lethargic all season as other players including Jeff Carter, Dustin Brown and their big offseason acquisition Ilya Kovalchuk have all struggled this year. This season, Vancouver Canucks' P.A. Of course with much of the blame of the Oilers placed on McLellan, Ken Hitchcock was not able to right the ship either, with the eventual blame going to now former-general manager Peter Chiarelli. What would the Kings be even more thankful for? All Rights Reserved. Five Players To Watch For: F Carl Hagelin, F Ilya Kovalchuk, D Alec Martinez, G Jonathan Quick, F Nate Thompson. The Kings have named former Vancouver Canucks boss Willie Desjardins as their new interim head coach, with German national team coach Marco Sturm as a new assistant. With all the goaltending injuries that the team has sustained this season as both Jonathan Quick and backup Jack Campbell have missed large chunks of the season already, the team’s goaltending hasn’t been that bad. The team should be impressed, however, with their success from their other goalies as Campbell fared quite well filling in for Quick initially before he went down with the same lower-body injury that Quick suffered. Enterprise value of team based on current arena deal (unless new arena is pending). If Kopitar and some of the other veterans can pick up the pace a bit and start to show their value, the team could find the offense they need to move them from out of the bottom of the Pacific Division. If they can find any way to move one or two of them, they have to hope someone finds enough value in some of those veterans that they would be willing to take them off their hands. 12. The Toronto Maple Leafs hired Manny Malhotra as an assistant coach on Tuesday, but who is he? Bright hockey minds including San Jose Sharks coach Peter DeBoer and former Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis will be gathering in Toronto this week for the eighth annual TeamSnap Hockey Coaches Conference. Phil Housley was also dismissed from the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday, and Willie Desjardins was informed that he wouldn't be back with the Los Angeles Kings next season. The Aquilini Group bought half of the team and arena in 2005 at a valuation of $207 million and raised its ownership to 100% the following year.
9. The team tried to re-stock in the offseason when the signed Ilya Kovalchuk to a three-year, $18.75MM deal to add even more offense. 1) Youth: With numerous aging veterans already locked up for the next three to five years with no way to escape from those deals, what Los Angeles needs more than anything are young talent that they can build on. Unfortunately, Hagelin only has two goals and eight points this season in 33 games, but still could provide a franchise with a quality middle-six rental for a low cost. The team has been right in the middle, ranked 15th in save percentage with a .903, which is impressive considering their issues.
