Vegas Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said he has no hard feelings toward the Florida Panthers after being fired 22 games into last season.

Gallant was 96-65-25 in three seasons coaching Florida, including a first place finish in the Atlantic Division in 2015-16.

“I had 2 1/2 years there and I loved every minute of it,” Gallant said on Thursday (h/t NHL.com).

“It was great and it will be good to see some good friends back there. Hopefully we play real well tomorrow in a big game.”

“We’re in the business of coaching, and stuff like that happens all the time,” Gallant said. “I’m happy where I’m at, our team is playing real well and that’s all I’m looking forward to.”

“Obviously it’s going to bring up old memories, but I’ve already played them so it’s just business as usual,” Marchessault said about the Golden Knights’ 5-2 win against the Panthers back in December.

“We’re going down there to win and get out of there.”

The Detroit Red Wings have hired franchise icon and former Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman to take over the post as their general manager.
