Struggling Canucks move on from Boudreau
The Vancouver Canucks announced on Sunday they have relieved fan-favourite coach Bruce Boudreau from his duties and former Coyotes and Lightning head coach Rick Tocchet will take over behind the bench.
Boudreau replaced Travis Green in December 2021 and went 35-15-10 in the rest of the season only to miss the playoffs by five points. The Canucks have stumbled to an 18-25-3 record this season and are 14 points out of a playoff spot with 36 games left.
Speculation about a coaching change in Vancouver had gone on for several weeks and with reports surfacing that management was set to make the change, fans at Rogers Arena gave Boudreau a standing ovation and chants of "Bruce, there it is!" after the Canucks' 4-2 loss to Edmonton Saturday night.
Tocchet will coach his first game with the Canucks on Tuesday night in Vancouver against the Chicago Blackhawks.
