New York Rangers Officially Part Ways with Gerard Gallant

What the hockey world had suspected for some days now has officially come true: Gerard Gallant is out as New York Rangers head coach.




The veteran NHL bench boss and the Rangers organization have mutually agreed to part ways, according to the team's official Twitter account. Gallant leaves the Rangers after only two seasons behind the bench, a 99-46-19 regular season record, and a first-round exit against the New Jersey Devils after reaching last season's Eastern Conference Finals.

This comes after reports from The Athletic's Arthur Staple on Wednesday that Gallant and Rangers GM Chris Drury got into a «heated argument» following Game 4 of the first round, as the Devils tied the series at two games apiece.


News of his departure from the Big Apple also comes after Gallant had expressed disappointment during a press conference for being asked questions about his future with the club.


This continues a dubious trend for Gallant in the NHL, as he's yet to last more than three seasons with any club he's coached. Prior to his stint with the Rangers, Gallant only served as head coach for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Florida Panthers, and Vegas Golden Knights for three seasons each.
