Report: Canucks is changing Travis Inexperienced with Bruce Boudreau

12/6/2021 3:09:30 AM GMT + 00: 00 – The recent Vancouver Canucks have reportedly sacked manager Travis Green less than two months after the season started.

The Canucks will replace Green with veteran coach Bruce Boudreau on Sunday evening, according to a report from Sportsnet in Canada. The team made no official announcements.

Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins dropped the Canucks’ record to 8-15-2. They are last in the Pacific Division with 18 points and only the Arizona Coyotes (12) are among them in the Western Conference ranking.

Vancouver has fought basically all season, losing three of the first four games and six of the first nine competitions. More recently, the Canucks experienced a 1-8-1 stretch that plummeted them to the west.

Green, 50, was in his fifth season as coach of Vancouver and retired with a record of 133-147-34. He led the Canucks to the playoffs once – a second-round exit in 2019-20. In May, Team Green rewarded Green with a two-year contract extension.

Boudreau, 66, coached the Washington Capitals (2007-11) and Anaheim Ducks (2011-16) for more than four seasons and the Minnesota Wild (2016-20) for nearly four seasons. He won the Jack Adams Award for the league’s best coach in 2007-08 and holds a career record of 567-302-115.
