The Tampa Bay Lightning has released head coach Guy Boucher.
The move is effective immediately, according to vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman.
Yzerman also said Martin Raymond and Dan Lacroix will share coaching responsibilities for Sunday night’s game against the Winnipeg Jets.
“Guy has poured his heart and soul into the Lightning organization for these past three years and we appreciate all the work he has done,” said Yzerman.
“Ultimately, I am not satisfied with the direction we are heading and I believe making a change today is in the best interest of our franchise,” he continued.
