John Hynes Signs At Two-Year Contract To Remain In Nashville

via NHL.com,

John Hynes signed a two-year contract to remain coach of the Nashville Predators on Thursday.

The 47-year-old guided the Predators to a 45-30-7 record this season, earning the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference. They were swept by the Colorado Avalanche in the Western Conference First Round.

"I think he's done a fantastic job -- and his staff," Predators general manager David Poile said. "... I am totally comfortable with John and his coaching staff to lead us to bigger and belter things moving forward."

Hynes is 92-64-10 in three seasons with Nashville since replacing Peter Laviolette on Jan. 7, 2020. The Predators have clinched a playoff berth in each of those seasons but have not won a series.

Prior to joining Nashville, Hynes coached the New Jersey Devils for five seasons, going 150-159-45 and guiding them to the playoffs in 2018, a five-game loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round.
