Three AHL Coaching Standouts Poised for NHL Roles

THIS WEEK: With the recent firing of Sheldon Keefe, and the ever-growing list of NHL head coaching vacancies, could any of the coaching talent in the AHL be tapped for a promotion to the National Hockey League?

Three current topics for fans of hockey and the AHL! First, Amy Johnson and Patrick Williams discuss the North Division semifinal matchups in the AHL's Calder Cup playoffs, then they take a look at the big item on Laval's offseason to-do list: deciding whether or not head coach Jean-Francois Houle receives a contract extension. Finally, the two identify three of the AHL's top head coaches who could get a look from NHL clubs this summer as the search begins for a whole host of new head coaches to fill vacancies.

Check out a new episode of The Press Zone, with podcast host Amy Johnson (@FlyersRule), every Tuesday for discussion about Montreal Canadiens prospects in the AHL. Plus, each episode also takes a closer look at other AHL teams, news, entertainment, and special events around the American Hockey League. It’s an informative and entertaining weekly show brought to you by a team of credentialed, knowledgeable hockey journalists!
