Watch Live: Canucks introduce Rick Tocchet as next head coach

After a tumultuous first half of the season, the Vancouver Canucks announced changes to their coaching staff on Sunday.

As now former head coach Bruce Boudreau and assistant coach Trent Cull were relieved of their duties, Rick Tocchet was hired as the 21st bench boss in franchise history. Adam Foote was named assistant coach and Sergei Gonchar was hired as a defensive development coach.

Tocchet, 58, joins the Canucks having most recently served four seasons as head coach of the Arizona Coyotes from 2017 to 2021. During his tenure in Arizona, Tocchet led the Coyotes to their first trip to the Stanley Cup Playoffs (2020) in eight years, when the team defeated the Nashville Predators in four games to advance from the Qualifying Round.

The new Canucks head coach will be introduced on Sunday and the full media availability can be seen right here on, starting at approximately 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT, through the video player atop this page.
