The Vegas Golden Knights fired coach Peter DeBoer on Monday, multiple outlets reported.

DeBoer, the franchise's second head coach, was hired on Jan. 15, 2020, after Gerard Gallant was fired. He compiled a 98-50-12 record in three seasons.

After reaching the Stanley Cup playoffs in each of DeBoer's first two seasons, the Golden Knights missed the postseason for the first time in the team's five-year history in 2021-22.

DeBoer, 53, has an overall record of 513-379-123 as a head coach with the Florida Panthers, New Jersey Devils, San Jose Sharks and Golden Knights.

He had one year remaining on his contract.

Vegas lost to the Dallas Stars in the conference finals in 2020 and fell to the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL semifinals in 2021.
