New Jersey Devils select John MacLean as their new head coach

compiled from staff, wire and NHL reports

After four tries, John MacLean is the new head coach of the New Jersey Devils.

A perennial candidate to lead the team he played for and coached as an assistant, MacLean was named the head coach of the New Jersey Devils on Thursday, replacing Jacques Lemaire, who retired.

MacLean was considered for the top job with the devils on three other occasions, but lost out to Claude Julien (2006), Brent Sutter (2007) and Lemaire (2009).

MacLean spent last season coaching the Devils’ American Hockey League affiliate in Lowell, Massachusetts and led the team to its only playoff appearance in four years. That had followed seven years as a Devils assistant.

One of the items on MacLean’s immediate to-do list, is to reverse the Devils’ most recent postseason history.  Since winning their third Stanley Cup in a nine-year span in 2003, the Devils have not made it past the second round in the playoffs. Last season, they lost to Philadelphia in five games in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

New Jersey had won its second straight Atlantic Division title with its 12th 100-point season in 15 years, but scored just nine goals in the five postseason games and allowed the flyers to convert 8 of 29 power-play chances.
