Red Wings bringing back coach Jeff Blashill for 4th season

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Red Wings are bringing coach Jeff Blashill for a fourth season, sticking with him while they rebuild after missing the postseason for the second year in a row.

"I'm big on experience," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said after announcing the decision on Tuesday.

Detroit extended its postseason streak to 25 years in 2016 during Blashill's debut season as an NHL coach. The Red Wings have fallen short since then and are 104-105-37 in three seasons under Blashill, who won one playoff game two years ago. Holland, who has been Detroit's GM since 1997 and recently agreed to a two-year contract extension, decided to stay with Blashill as the Red Wings look for the right mix of youth and experience to get back in the mix in the Eastern Conference.
