The former Arizona Coyotes head coach has been a senior advisor with the Seattle-based expansion franchise since last June.

The Edmonton Oilers have parted ways with skills and development coach Paul Coffey, according to Sportsnet's Mark Spector.

The report came shortly after Dave Tippett was introduced as the new head coach.

This is one of several management changes the team has made after finishing 14th in the Western Conference this season while missing the playoffs for the second consecutive year.

The three-time Norris Trophy winner was hired in January 2018 by former general manager Peter Chiarelli and joined former teammates Wayne Gretzky and Kevin Lowe - the current vice chairs of the Oilers. The trio won three Stanley Cups together in Edmonton during the 1980s dynasty.

Sutter had worked in Edmonton's front office since the 2011-12 season and moved into his most recent role in 2016. He was a large part of the team's pro scouting operation, Rishaug added.

Report: Puljujarvi remains strong trade option for Oilers.
Trading winger Jesse Puljujarvi remains a strong option for the Edmonton Oilers, reports TSN's Darren Dreger, citing league sources. It was reported in February that the Oilers were open to trading the 21-year-old, but Edmonton's since remodeled its front office with the hiring of general manager Ken Holland. Puljujarvi is finished his entry-level contract and is a restricted free agent this summer. After an underwhelming start to his career, Puljujarvi isn't in line for a big contract, but his agent quashed rumblings of a potential KHL deal in Finland, according to Dreger.
