Paul Maurice announced this morning that he was stepping down as the coach of the Winnipeg Jets after 8 years. It was a shocking news for everyone as it came unexpected.

"This is a good team. I'm a good coach, but sometimes when you take over a team it's kind of like you're starting at the bottom of a mountain and you're pushing a rock up," Maurice said.
"You can only get it to certain place. That's where I feel I'm at."
Maurice added that his team could need a new voice behind the bench:
"And if you would allow me some arrogance, I would say I'm better positioned than anyone to know that they need a new voice," he said. "They haven't quit on me, they're a good bunch of men and I'm cheering for them, I am."
Dave Lowry will take over the coaching role for the remainder of the season.
