NHL: Predators sign coach John Hynes to two-year extension
Nashville Predators head coach John Hynes signed a two-year contract extension on Thursday.
Financial terms were not disclosed for Hynes, who owns a 92-64-10 record since replacing Peter Laviolette on Jan. 7, 2020.
The Predators (45-30-7, 97 points) were swept by the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of this season’s playoffs. Nashville has clinched a playoff berth in all three seasons under Hynes.
“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 better things moving forward.”
Hynes, 47, had been signed through the 2021-22 season with a team option for 2022-23.
He coached the New Jersey Devils from 2015-19 and posted a 150-159-45 record. His career record in the playoffs is just 4-15.
