It may not be in Ottawa, but it appears Peter DeBoer will be coaching somewhere in the NHL next season.
On the same day Craig Hartsburg was named the head coach of the Senators, the Kitchener Rangers’ website says their head coach will be leaving the organization to accept a head coaching position in the National Hockey League, adding that details would not be released until Monday.
Earlier this week, DeBoer met with Eugene Melnyk regarding the Senators’ post but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement.
DeBoer is also among the candidates for the head coach position with the Florida Panthers and is expected to interview with the Los Angeles Kings this weekend.
