Ex Oilers coach gets paid!

Published October 6, 2023 at 2:26 PM

Former Oilers head coach Todd McLellan seems to have found a home with the Los Angeles Kings, where he has served as their head coach for the past four seasons.

During this time, he led the Kings to the Stanley Cup playoffs and successfully restored the franchise's credibility, which had suffered during a dark period several years ago.

According to Elliot Friedman of the "32 Thoughts" podcast, it appears that the Kings are prepared to offer McClellan a one-season contract extension.

Over the past four years, he has coached 290 games, achieving a record of 141-115-34. Unfortunately, he was eliminated in the first round during the last two seasons by his former team, the Edmonton Oilers.

It seems that Kings ownership attributes the team's success to McClellan and general manager Rob Blake, as both men will be without contracts by 2025. The Kings are a team on the rise, having made several changes to their roster and will continue to be a playoff threat.
