The headline says it all: Pittsburgh’s “Disco” Dan Bylsma was awarded the Jack Adams trophy at tonight’s NHL Awards Show. The award recognizes the best coach in the National Hockey League.
Bylsma led a ridiculously injury-depleted Penguins team to the second-most wins in the National Hockey League and the most in the Eastern Conference, as well as the second-most wins and points in team history.
The Penguins were ousted in the first round of this year’s playoffs by the Tampa Bay Lightning in seven games.
Bylsma becomes the first coach in Penguins’ history to win the award.
Great work by all the boys this season, especially Bylsma. Well-deserved.
