Report: Vigneault to be named Rangers coach Friday
Report: Alain Vigneault to be named New York Rangers coach Friday.

The New York Rangers announced Wednesday the club will have a press conference Friday (11 a.m. ET; NHL Network) at Radio City Music Hall, where it is expected Alain Vigneault will be introduced as the team's new coach.

Multiple media outlets have reported Vigneault agreed last week to a five-year contract to replace John Tortorella, who was fired after the team was eliminated by the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Vigneault was fired after seven seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, during which he went 346-170-57, won the Presidents' Trophy twice and took the Canucks to the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.

Quote of the Day

It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
