The Milwaukee Admirals have called a 3pm news conference this afternoon, presumably to announce that they’re losing their head coach, Kirk Muller after just 17-games.
The NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes fired coach Paul Maurice this morning. They could announce Kirk Muller as their next coach as early as this evening.
Muller was an assistant with the Montreal Canadians in 2006. He took over the Admirals this season after Lane Lambert was promoted to Nashville.
Muller led the Admirals to a 10-6-0-1 record. They’re in third place in the Midwest Division, seven points behind the Checkers. He played 19 seasons in the NHL and was drafted second overall in 1984 by New Jersey after Mario Lemieux was taken first.
Muller finished his career with 357 goals and 602 assists.
