This is wild!
The Las Vegas Golden Knights have fired their coach Gerard Gallant, and hired former sharks coach Pete DeBoer.
Pete was fired in December 2019 after a string of losing streaks. DeBoer will join the Golden Knights on Thursday in Ottawa ahead of the team’s game against the Senators.
According to their press release, Vegas Golden Knights General Manager Kelly McCrimmon said “In Peter DeBoer, we have a proven, experienced head coach who we believe can help us achieve our ultimate goal. We are excited to welcome Peter and his family to the Vegas Golden Knights organization. We look forward to a strong finish to the 2019-20 season with Peter at the helm and a successful tenure in the seasons to come.”
