Islanders head coach Barry Trotz was awarded the 2019 Jack Adams Award, given annually to the NHL coach who contributed the most to his team's success.
Trotz is the second Islanders head coach to ever win the award, joining Al Arbour in 1978-79.
In his first season with the Islanders, Trotz led the club to a 103-point campaign, their highest point total since the 1983-84 season. The Islanders' fourth-place Eastern Conference ranking was their best finish since the conference was created in 1993.
Under Trotz, the Islanders allowed the fewest goals in the NHL this past season, one year after allowing the most goals in the league.
The veteran coach moved into fourth place on the NHL's all-time wins list during his first season with the Islanders, finishing the year with 810 career regular-season wins.
Prior to joining the Islanders, Trotz spent the previous four years with the Capitals, winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup in 2017-18.
