    Desjardins to be Canucks' next coach: report

    "Willie Desjardins will be introduced as coach of the Vancouver Canucks next week, TSN reported Friday.


    Desjardins, 58, has spent the past two seasons as coach of the Texas Stars, the Dallas Stars' American Hockey League affiliate. They won the Calder Cup this season, and Desjardins was named the AHL coach of the year in 2012-13, his first season. In two AHL seasons he has a 91-40-21 record.


    TSN's Bob McKenzie said Desjardins will meet with the Canucks in Vancouver this weekend and he will be their coach if "all goes as expected in the hiring process."


    He would replace John Tortorella, who was fired after one season.Desjardins has experience in the NHL, spending the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons as an associate coach with Dallas.


    Desjardins spent 10 seasons coaching in the Western Hockey League, including nine with the Medicine Hat Tigers. He coached Canada to a silver medal at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship."


     


    Go Willie!

    Supposedly he was high on Pittsburghs list as well. 58 and getting his first crack at an NHL head coaching job, good for him.

    Good for him.  He's reached the top of his profession.  That's cool.

    And, he has nothing to live up to, as the last two coaches have left in disgrace.
