“We made a tough decision today and have relieved Bob Boughner of his duties as head coach,” Panthers President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Dale Tallon said. “We didn’t meet expectations this season and share responsibility for that fact. After careful evaluation, we have determined that this is a necessary first step for our young team and we will seek to identify a transformative, experienced head coach with Stanley Cup pedigree to lead our team going forward.

“We’re grateful to Bob, Paul, and their families for their hard work and their dedication to the Panthers organization and we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.”

This season, the Panthers ended their season with a 36-32-14 record. Their season concluded on Saturday with a 4-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Both seasons under Boughner, the team missed the playoffs. During his first season with the team, he guided them to a 44-30-8 record.

The team missed the playoffs by 12 points this season. One year ago, the Panthers missed the playoffs by one point.
