The pressure is now on Detroit Red Wings' general manager Steve Yzerman , centre, to find the perfect fit for head coach after letting Jeff Blashill go.

Yzerman made the long-anticipated move on Saturday to fire head coach Jeff Blashill, who spent 11 years with the organization and seven as head coach. Assistant coach Doug Houda and goalie coach Jeff Salajko were also let go.

“We had gotten to a point fundamentally, with and without the puck, we had regressed,” Yzerman said Monday. “We’re at a point now where I felt like I’ve got to see if bringing in a new coach (and a) new coaching staff can make a difference to get us back on track. To get us going in the right direction.”

Many had expected the move a year ago, but Yzerman opted to stay the course with Blashill and says he has no regrets on that decision.

“No, I don’t, honestly,” Yzerman said of keeping Blashill after last season. “I was comfortable with the decision. I’m totally comfortable with that decision.”
