It's rare, but not one single NHL head coach has been fired yet this season. 

Last season, five coaches were fired during the season, so we can probably expect some heads to roll once the season is over. 

Kevin Allen of USA Today put together his list of "Six NHL coaches on the hot seat" and some might surprise you. 

Here are his six:

Alain Vigneault, New York Rangers: The team announced to fans they were starting a rebuild period and with the team still in the playoff picture, they started trading away important pieces. Vigneault could be next up as part of those changes. 

Jeff Blashill, Detroit Red Wings: Wings general manager Ken Holland is without a contract for the upcoming season, and with a new arena, the team could be looking for a head coach/gm facelift.

Todd McLellan, Edmonton Oilers: There hasn't been a bigger disaster of a season than that of the Oilers. After looking like a serious contender last season, the team has fallen off the face of the earth. 

Joel Quenneville, Chicago Blackhawks: Probably the most surprising name on the list. Quenneville has three Stanley Cups during his tenure in Chicago however many are chirping a fresh start is needed in the Windy City. 

Barry Trotz, Washington Capitals: The veteran coach hasn't had his contract yet, and with the team heading into the playoffs, it's usually not a good sign.

Bill Peters, Carolina Hurricanes: Ron Francis is out as GM in Carolina and with Peters being Francis' guy, whoever the new GM might want to name his own head coach.

Who do you think is most likely to be fired from this list?
