BetOnline has Derek King favored to be named the Chicago Blackhawks next head coach with payout odds of $30 on every $10 bet or $300 for every $100 bet.

Odds to Be Named Blackhawks Next Coach

Derek King                  +300 

Peter DeBoer              +600 

Barry Trotz                  +700 

Mike Velucci               +900 

Derek Lalonde             +1000 

Jim Montgomery        +1000 

Rick Tocchet                +1000 

Travis Green                +1000 

Jeff Blashill                  +1100 

Claude Julien               +1200 

John Tortorella           +1200 

Paul Maurice               +1200 

Spencer Carbery         +1200 

David Quinn                +1400 

Benoit Groulx              +1600 

Rikard Gronborg         +1600 

Pascal Vincent             +2000

It makes sense to have King as the favorite being that he was the interim head coach through the season after taking over back in November.

The Blackhawks fired head coach Jeremy Colliton very early in the 2021-22 regular season after a pitiful start, which saw the Blackhawks go 1-9-2.

Peter DeBoer had the second shortest odds of becoming the next head coach at 6-1.  He was fired by the Vegas Golden Knights after that team missed its first playoffs.  Much of that had to do with injuries and a little bad luck (they missed the post season by only a few points).

DeBoer reached the Stanley Cup Final with both New Jersey and San Jose but never won the big series.

Barry Trotz pays the third shortest odds at 7-1.  He's widely considered the biggest name available during the off season.  Trotz was fired by the Islanders for no apparent reason.

Overall, it's a crap shoot with 13 names being offered up at 12-1 odds or shorter.
