EDMONTON, AB - As first reported by TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Todd McLellan era is over in Edmonton after the head coach was relieved of his duties on Tuesday morning.

The move comes on the heels of a run that saw the team lose six of their past seven games. The Oilers are currently second-last in the Pacific Division, sporting a record of 9-10-1 to start the 2018/2019 season.

As announced in a team release on Tuesday morning, the Oilers have hired former Dallas Stars head coach Ken Hitchcock to replace McLellan. The Sherwood Park native holds an 823-506-88 record for his career and is the third-winningest coach in NHL history.

More to come as the story develops.
