Flames hire Peters as coach



Bill Peters was named coach of the Calgary Flames on Monday

Peters, who resigned as coach of the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday, received a multi-year contract. He replaces Glen Gulutzan, who was fired after the flames missed the Stanley Cup playoffs.

"There are a lot of good talents and many good pieces on this roster," said Peters [196592002] Peters had another year on his contract before exercising an opt-out clause with Carolina. He went 137-138-53, and the Hurricanes did not qualify for the playoffs during his four seasons as a coach.

Peters coached Canada to the gold medal at the 2016 IIHF World Championship, where Flames general manager Brad Treliving served as co-GM. He will be from 4.-20. May be again coach in Canada at the 201

8 World Cup in Copenhagen and Herning, Denmark. "Having seen first-hand how he works, Bill is just a really impressive guy," said Treliving Peters. "How he prepares, his detail, the knowledge he has about the game, the ability to convey that knowledge, I think he is a real special coach."

Peters, born in Three Hills, Alberta, 80 miles northeast of Calgary, Gulutzan's third coach of the Flames (2016-18) and Bob Hartley (2012-16) will be fired in four seasons. Gulutzan was fired after two seasons with Calgary on April 17.

The Flames were 37-35-10, fifth in the Pacific Division and missed the playoffs by 11 points, having made it to Gulutzans first season record of 17-20-4 was the fourth-worst in the NHL, and his power play (16.0 percent) was tied for 28. The Flames also scored NHL-low 61 third-period goals.
