Report: Canucks intend to add two new assistant coaches for next season

The Vancouver Canucks will look to replace the two assistant coaches that departed this offseason, according to a report.

This, from The Athletic’s Thomas Drance:

Canucks head coach Bruce Boudreau didn’t seem to have made a decision yet when he appeared on the VANcast last week and discussed whether the club might hire another eye in the sky assistant coach to join Boudreau’s staff and replace Kyle Gustafsson.

I asked around on Monday and it seems that the organization has made a decision since then. Sources strongly suggested to The Athletic on Monday that the club intends to hire both a video coach and an additional coach to serve as an eye-in-the-sky for this upcoming campaign.

Boudreau brought Scott Walker with him when he was hired to replace Travis Green in December, but Walker recently announced he’s leaving the Canucks for family considerations.

As Drance pointed out, the club also wants to replace video coach Kyle Gustafson, who was relieved of his duties this offseason.
