Capitals’ Coach Todd Reirden’s Recent Promotion Included “No Interviews” Stipulation

Capitals’ coach Todd Reirden was promoted to “associate coach” on August 26th of last summer. The announcement of the promotion seemed generally innocuous at the time. Reirden was about to fill in for Coach Trotz while Trotz was coaching Team Canada in the World Cup of Hockey. But there was a lot more to it. 

According to SportsNet’s Elliotte Friedman, Reirden received the promotion to associate coach with the stipulation that he could not talk to other teams. That wasn’t public at the time. With Barry Trotz heading into the final year of his contract, the caveat takes on obvious added significance.

Could the next coach of the Capitals already be set in stone? Probably not, but it’s pretty clear the Capitals front office has their eyes trained on Reirden.
