CALGARY - The Calgary Flames have hired Bill Peters as the team's head coach.
The Flames introduced Peters at a news conference on Monday at Scotiabank Saddledome. The 53-year-old from Three Hills, Alberta, resigned as head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday after four seasons and a year remaining on his contract.
The Flames fired Glen Gulutzan and assistants Dave Cameron and Paul Gerrard last week after missing the playoffs with a 37-35-10 record.
In his NHL head coaching debut, Peters went 137-138-53 with the Hurricanes but wasn't able to get the team into the playoffs.
