Has Ken Hitchcock Coached His Last Game In Dallas?

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

There's a chance Ken Hitchcock coached his final NHL game Saturday.

He is the third-winningest coach in league history with 823 wins. After Saturday's 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings, Hitchcock leads the Stars with 319 wins and is second in line behind Mike Modano in terms of franchise icon status. He is going to the Hockey Hall of Fame one day.

What's more, he is a heck of a guy with a heck of a story -- and this chapter might be over.

Hitchcock is on a long-term contract with the Stars, but the coaching part of that contract is to be explored after each season. Should the Stars believe there is a better option out there to coach the team, Hitchcock can be promoted to an advisor's position. As we survey the NHL landscape just one day after the regular season, there could be better options out there.
