NHL head coach John Cooper extended by three years by Lightning

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced Monday that it has extended coach John Cooper’s contract for three seasons until 2024-2025.

The announcement was made by General Manager Julian Presboa in a press release.

“Koop is unequivocally the best person for the job, can we read. He is a great leader, spokesperson and ambassador for our organization. We are fortunate to have him as a coach.”

In just over eight seasons at the helm of Florida, Cooper collected the record 383-197-53. He’s led Tampa to win the Stanley Cup the past two seasons.

Unsurprisingly, Cooper’s 383 wins since 2013 represented the highest total for a coach on a Pittman Tour during this period.

Lightning has also been the team’s best offensively since his appointment, with 2019 scoring a goal.
