Bill Peters didn't have to wait very long to land a new NHL head coaching gig and he'll be working in his home province to boot.
Peters, who resigned as head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday, was introduced as the new coach of the Calgary Flames on Monday.
The 52-year-old Three Hills, Alberta, native replaces Glen Gulutzan, who was fired last week along with assistants Dave Cameron and Paul Gerrard after the Flames missed the playoffs with a 37-35-10 record.
Peters, who had coached the Hurricanes for four seasons in his NHL coaching debut, had one year left on his contract. He led Carolina to 137-138-53 record during his time with the team.
