This past season, Boudreau led the Ducks to the Pacific Division title for the fourth straight season, only to lose in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs to the Nashville Predators.

The Ducks posted a 46-25-11 record for 103 points in the regular season.

Boudreau had a regular-season record of 208-104-40 with the Ducks.

Prior to joining Anaheim, Boudreau coached the Washington Capitals from 2007-11 and has a career record of 409-192-80.
