The Los Angeles Kings have fired a former Swift Current Broncos head coach this morning.

Todd McLellan was relieved of his duties by the NHL team that's only won three of their last 17 games.

The Melville, Saskatchewan, product has spent 19 seasons behind an NHL bench and was in his fifth season as head coach of the Kings.

McLellan was the coach of the Broncos from 1994 until 2000 and guided the team to a 236-157-36-3 record.
