Notes[change | edit source]

  • a  A running total of the number of coaches of the Nordiques. Thus any coach who has two or more separate terms as head coach is only counted once.
  • b Maurice Filion's six games coached with the Nordiques were in the middle of the season, not in the end of the season.
