The Philadelphia Flyers have named Alain Vigneault the 21st head coach in franchise history.
During his tenure on Broadway, Vigneault won 226 games with the Rangers which was the third most by a head coach in franchise history.
His new deal with the Flyers is reportedly $5 million a year for five seasons.
Vigneault signs for $25 M over five years according to a source https://t.co/Hi7wDfKrHu— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) April 15, 2019
Vigneault can’t be paid by both teams concurrently, so the Rangers will have that money to theoretically allocate to other parts of the organization.
It will be interesting to see if Vigneault asks to see if Lindy Ruff is made available, as he was the main reason the former Buffalo Sabres and Dallas Stars head coach joined the organization on July 10, 2017.
