As reported by Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, Bruce Boudreau is expected to be named the next coach of the Vancouver Canucks.
At the time of the report, current Canucks coach Travis Green has not been officially relieved of his duties. The Canucks currently sit last in the Pacific Division with a record of 8-15-2 in 25 games. Only Arizona (12), Ottawa (13), NY Islanders (14) and Montreal (15) have fewer points than Vancouver’s 18.
Boudreau last trained with Minnesota in 2019-20 before being fired before the COVID-19 pandemic. He coached Washington from 2007-2012 and Anaheim from 2011-16 and won the Jack Adams Award in 2007-08.
