DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Avalanche say Joel Quenneville is out as coach after three seasons.
Quenneville was 131-92-23 in Denver, but just 2-2 in playoff series after inheriting a team that was on the slide after a decade of dominance in the NHL.
The Avs were swept out of the playoffs by the Detroit Red Wings last week, and general manager Francois Giguere faces a huge task this offseason, facing decisions on 13 players who will become unrestricted free agents if they're not re-signed.
