It officially happened on Monday night. The St. Louis Blues fired Head Coach Mike Yeo. The team announced it in a news release at 11:05 Monday night.
The Blues had just lost to the worst team in the NHL. In fact, they were shutout for the third time in four games. But this time it was to the L.A. Kings. General Manager Doug Armstrong has decided to name Craig Berube the Interim Head Coach. More details of the firing and decision to name Berube the Interim Coach will take place in a news conference at St. Louis Mills.
Berube is familiar with the Blues system as he has been an associate coach since 2017. He was the Head Coach of the Chicago Wolves in the AHL. He also coached with the Philadelphia Flyers. He played 17 years in the NHL for 5 teams.
Meanwhile, there have been many whispers about the Blues and their interest in former Head Coach Joel Quenneville since the Blackhawks fired him earlier this month. He was last seen in public tailgating with Chicago Bears fans on Sunday night. No one is saying publicly if he has been contacted.
