Stars to Hire Pete Deboer as Head Coach

The Dallas Stars will reportedly hire Peter DeBoer as the team next head coach.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the Dallas Stars will reportedly hire Peter DeBoer as their next coach.

DeBoer has previously served as coach of Florida, New Jersey and San Jose before taking over in Vegas in 2020. He was left go in May after the Golden Knights missed the playoffs, finishing with a 98-50-12 record. DeBoer has made it to the Cup final twice as coach, coming in his first years with New Jersey (2012) and San Jose (2016).

DeBoer was one of the biggest coaches on the free agent market, and will take over from Rick Bowness who stepped down following the team's first-round loss to the Calgary Flames. The Detroit Red Wings, Winnipeg Jets and Boston Bruins are still looking for a coach.
