NHL: Arizona Coyotes at Dallas Stars
Take him, he’s yours.

The Oilers hired their coach and parted ways with one of their legends. It’s your Wednesday Morning Hot Links.

  • The Oilers hired Dave Tippett to be the bench boss for the 2019-20 season. He replaces Ken Hitchcock, who replaced Todd McLellan during the season. We’ll have plenty on Tippett in the coming days, but for now, check out BaggedMilk’s opener over at Oilers Nation.
  • The Oilers have parted ways with Paul Coffey. I didn’t even know that Coffey was with the team until I heard about it in March. MacTavish is over in the KHL, Coffey has been relieved. Czechboy sees changes! (Copper and Blue)
  • Lowetide takes a quick and dirty look at the new Oilers coach, Dave Tippett. Also, what to do with Jesse Puljujarvi? (Lowetide)
  • Bruce McCurdy’s end of season recap on Darnell Nurse shows that the Oilers rearguard should stay in the fold. (Cult of Hockey)

That’s all for now. The Blues look to even it up in Boston tonight in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Haver at ‘er.
