Lamoriello: DeBoer will return as Devils coach

NEWARK, N.J. -- Peter DeBoer will return to coach the New Jersey Devils next season, general manager Lou Lamoriello said Sunday.

Lamoriello spoke with reporters after the first period of the team's season finale Sunday against the Boston Bruins. It was an attempt to put to rest any confusion about the immediate future of the coach following multiple reports that indicated the Devils were working on a contract extension with DeBoer.

"There's a lot of rumors going on, a lot of misinformation about our coach, so I thought I'd get really out of character a little and put this to rest," Lamoriello said. "Pete DeBoer is under contract for next year, has been under contract for next year, and will be coaching next year. That's all I have to say. I don't want to get into any other discussions."

Lamoriello would not comment about the report that the Devils and DeBoer are closing in on an extension. He typically does not divulge contract information, length or term, but felt it was necessary to clear up DeBoer's situation in light of the recent reports.

"We usually wait to make any announcements about anything or when it's not necessary," Lamoriello said. "Where ever the information is coming from, I can't answer that, but I thought I'd just put that to rest."

DeBoer has been New Jersey's coach since July 19, 2011. He led the Devils to the Stanley Cup Final in 2012, but the team will miss the postseason for a second straight year. DeBoer has compiled a 101-75-34 record with the Devils.
