May 14 (Bloomberg) -- The Dallas Stars fired coach Glen Gulutzan and assistant Paul Jerrard after the National Hockey League team failed to make the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season..

The Stars finished the lockout-shortened season with a 22-22-4 record. It was the worst mark in the Pacific Division and left Dallas seven points out of a playoff spot.

Gulutzan, 41, was in his second season as coach and led the Stars to a 42-35-5 record in 2011-12. Assistant Curt Fraser and goaltending coach Mike Valley will remain with the team, the franchise said in a statement on its website.
