DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Red Wings have hired Derek Lalonde to coach their rebuilding team, hoping the two-time Stanley Cup-winning assistant can make all the right moves to make the franchise relevant again.

Lalonde spent the past four years on Jon Cooper's staff with the Tampa Bay Lightning, a stretch that included championships in 2020 and '21 and, most recently, a third consecutive trip to the Stanley Cup Final.

"He has proven himself as an excellent coach at every level and has spent the last four seasons in the National Hockey League as part of a very successful program in Tampa Bay," general manager Steve Yzerman said in a statement. "We feel he is ready to take the next step in his career as the head coach of the Detroit Red Wings."
