After seven seasons with Jeff Blashill as coach, the Detroit Red Wings announced it won't renew the contract of Jeff Blashill.

Executive vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced Saturday on the team's site ande social media that the Wings won't bring back Blashill, assistant coach Doug Houda and goaltending coach Jeff Salajko

Blashill had spent 11 seasons with the Wings organization, seven of them in Detroit.

Houda and Salajko have served in their respective positions for six seasons.

The move hardly comes as a surprise, considering the Wings hadn't made the playoffs for the sixth straight year, with losing records each of those seasons.  

The team moved quickly to remove the coaches photos' from its website.
