The Calgary Flames are expected to hire Glen Gulutzan as coach, TSN reported Friday.

Gulutzan, 44, spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach with the Vancouver Canucks, and coached the Dallas Stars from 2011-13. He had a 64-57-9 record in two seasons with Dallas but failed to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

He coached the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League from 2009-11, losing in the Calder Cup Finals in 2011. Gulutzan also coached Las Vegas of the ECHL for six seasons, from 2003-09.

The Flames are the only team without a coach. Bob Hartley was fired May 3.
