The NHL announced Wednesday that Winnipeg Jets head coach Rick Bowness finished 3rd for the Jack Adams Award, given annually to the leagues top coach voted on by the National Broadcasters’ Association.

Rick Tocchet of the Vancouver Canucks won the award, finishing with 483 votes, Andrew Brunette of the Nashville Predators came in 2nd with 145 votes, ahead of our very own Rick Bowness, who had 75 votes.

Bowness, 69, who recently retired from coaching, just finished his second season coaching the Winnipeg Jets. He lead the club this season to a 52-24-6 record, their 110 points were secon highest in the Western Conference and fourth most in the NHL. The club also won the William M. Jennings Trophy with 199 goals allowed during the regular season.
The Jets set a franchise record by going 35 consecutive games allowing three goals or fewer (Nov 4th –  Jan 20th). During that stretch, they also set a club record with a 14-game run without allowing more than two goals (Dec 20th – Jan 20th). Winnipeg also set the franchise records for longest winning streak (eight games, twice: Dec 3oth – Jan 11th and Apr 1 – Apr 18th) and longest point streak (14 games: 12-0-2 from Dec 13th – Jan 11th).

The Jets posted the most wins in franchise history in the first half of the 82-game regular season with 28, and they matched their record for wins with 52. Winnipeg allowed just 94 goals in the first half of the season, which was also a franchise record. This was Bowness’ second straight season leading the Jets to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Now we wait as Jets fans to see who the next head coach of the Winnipeg Jets will be.
