Alain Vigneault has accepted a two year extension to his contract as head coach of the Vancouver Canucks.
There had been a lot of speculation and rumors over the fate of Vigneault after the Canucks’ first round exit in the 2011-2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Despite that, Vigneault had helped the Canucks achieve their best season with 111 points during the 2011-2012. Since joining the team in 2006, the Canucks have claimed two Presidents’ Trophies, five Northwest Division Titles, five 100+ point seasons and one trip to the Stanley Cup Final under Vigneault’s leadership.
Prior to arriving in Vancouver, Vigneault coached the Canucks AHL farm team, the Manitoba Moose, and before that serving as head coach of the Montreal Canadiens.
