Over the past 28 years, Todd McLellan has been a coach in the SJHL, WHL, IHL, AHL & NHL, and in all but three of those seasons he’s been at the helm. He’s in his seventh season as NHL head coach and third with the Los Angeles Kings.
McLellan has a Stanley Cup under his belt from his time with the Detroit Red Wings in 2007-08, and on January 2, 2022, he won his 500th NHL game, becoming the 27th coach in league history to accomplish the feat.
Is the 54-year-old Saskatchewan product a natural born coach? How has he been able to rise up the coaching ranks with such ease? McLellan explained when he got bit by the coaching bug and some of the most important lessons he’s learned throughout his career, during the intro to his Virtual Hockey Summit presentation.
