The Devils announced Tuesday afternoon that they have relieved John Hynes of his head coaching duties and will elevate Alain Nasreddine to interim head coach.
Hynes had been the head coach of the Devils since 2015 and held a 150-159-18 record during his four-plus seasons with the team.
This season, the Devils have gone 9-13-4 with 22 and sit at the bottom of the eastern conference. Despite having the No. 1 pick in 2017 and 2019--which turned into Nico Hischier and Jack Hughes-- and the additions of Taylor Hall and P.K. Subban, the Devils haven't progressed much since Hynes took the reins.
