Islanders Fire Head Coach


In a rather shocking move, the New York Islanders have fired head coach Barry Trotz. 

This decision comes after the Islanders' disappointing 2021-22 season. They finished the year with a 37-35-10 record and were fifth in the Metropolitan Division. With that, they were 16 points behind the Washington Capitals for the final Wild Card spot.

Although it was a bad year for the Islanders, this decision wasn't expected by many. Trotz put together a very strong tenure behind the bench for the Islanders. He sported an overall record of 152-102-34 and led the Islanders to the Eastern Conference Final in back-to-back years. 

Nevertheless, changes are coming to New York, and this is the first major one.
