Nevertheless, Deboer is expected to land a head coaching job with the Dallas Stars.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre Lebrun, the Stars and Deboer are working on finalizing a 4-year deal worth more than $4 million dollars a season.

Deboer was relieved of duty by the Golden Knights last month after the team failed to make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.
