DETROIT (AP) After missing the playoffs for the first time in 26 seasons, the Detroit Red Wings aren't embarking on a total shakeup.
General manager Ken Holland says Jeff Blashill will remain Detroit's coach. Blashill, who was hired in 2015 after Mike Babcock's departure, made the playoffs in his first season, but Detroit went 33-36-13 in 2016-17.
"I believe in Jeff Blashill," Holland said Tuesday. "I believe in him because of his resume before he got here. I worked with him every day. I know he works at it. He's talking to people. He's gathering information. He's trying to get better."
