Report: Tocchet to interview for Rangers', Kraken's coaching jobs
Rick Tocchet is looking to line up his next head coaching gig.
Tocchet and the Coyotes mutually parted ways earlier in May. The team went 125-131-34 over four seasons under his leadership. Though the club missed the playoffs in three of those four campaigns, Tocchet led the franchise to its first postseason series win since 2012 in the bubble last summer.
Before joining the Coyotes, Tocchet captured back-to-back Stanley Cups as an assistant coach with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016 and 2017.
The Rangers also reportedly interviewed longtime NHL bench boss Gerard Gallant, who was recently selected to coach Canada at the upcoming world hockey championship.
New York dismissed former team president John Davidson and general manager Jeff Gorton on May 5 after the Rangers failed to make the playoffs for the third time in four seasons.
