  • The John Hynes era appears to be nearing its end.
  • The Devils are expected to fire their head coach within the next 48 hours, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
  • The team is expected to name assistant coach Alain Nasreddine as interim head coach when the move is made.
  • The news was first reported on NJ.com’s texting subscription service, Devils Insider.
  • If the Devils make the move, it would end Hynes’ tenure in New Jersey during his fifth season.
  • The Devils’ rocky start to the season increased the heat under Hynes behind the bench, and though the team rebounded slightly with a 7-7-1 November, the Devils suffered back-to-back humiliating defeats on Saturday and Monday, losing 4-0 to the Rangers and 7-1 to the Buffalo Sabres.
  • Hynes is expected to coach the Devils against the Golden Knights tonight, but the situation is fluid.
  • Nasreddine is the lone member of Hynes’ original staff still with the Devils.
  • He has served under Hynes as an assistant every season going back to 2010-11, when the two were coaching together with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in the AHL.
