Dallas Eakins Expected Tor Return Next Season As The Coach Of The Anaheim Ducks

from Elliott Teaford of the OC Register,

The Ducks are expected to retain Dallas Eakins as their coach for at least a fourth season, an NHL source said. A statement on Eakins’ future is anticipated later this week from General Manager Pat Verbeek, who hasn’t been with the team to start its four-game trip.

Eakins’ three-season contract is set to expire when the season ends on April 29, and it wasn’t immediately certain whether the team held an option on a fourth season or whether he would be given an extension for 2022-23 and possibly beyond. Verbeek was expected to clarify the situation.

Neither Eakins nor Verbeek were available for comment Monday, a scheduled day off for the Ducks in South Florida after starting their trip with a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday and a 5-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday. Verbeek was on a scouting trip.

The Ducks took significant strides in the early months of the 2021-22 season before COVID-19 took its toll on the lineup at the Christmas break and into January. The Ducks were 17-9-6 and among the Pacific Division leaders at the holiday break, but their lack of depth was quickly exposed.
