Breaking News – Golden Knights Hire Bruce Cassidy As Next Head Coach

The Vegas Golden Knights are set to hire former Boston Bruins bench boss Bruce Cassidy as their next head coach, according to ESPN’s Kevin Weekes.

The Bruins announced last week that they had fired Cassidy after six seasons with the team. Cassidy finished his time in Boston with a record of 245-108-46 and led the team to within one win of a Stanley Cup Finals victory in 2019. However, the team opted part ways with the coach following the team’s first-round exit from the Stanley Cup Playoffs this past season.

Cassidy led the Bruins to the postseason in all six years at the helm. The 57-year-old won the Jack Adams Award as coach of the year in 2019-20, and he ranks 12th all-time in points percentage among coaches with at least 82 games.

The Golden Knights fired Peter DeBoer as head coach on May 16 after missing the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
