The Ottawa Senators have fired head coach Guy Boucher

The move was announced on Friday morning as well as the decision to promote associate coach Marc Crawford to interim head coach. “I want to thank Guy for three years of service,” Senators GM Pierre Dorion said. “He is a good person and has been an excellent representative of the Senators. At this point, however, we need a different set of coaching and leadership skills to guide our team through this rebuild.” Ottawa has the worst record in the league with a mark of 22-37-5.
