19-YEAR NHL VETERAN EXPECTED TO BE APART OF VANCOUVER'S NEW COACHING STAFF

JAN 21, 2023  (22H05)      COOPER GODIN
The Vancouver Canucks are expected to formally announce their coaching change on Monday with a press conference introducing Rick Tocchet as the new bench boss.

In the past week, questions have arose regarding who would be on the new coaching staff and Sergei Gonchar's name was brought up, with it being more and more likely that he'll either be an assistant or in an advisory role.

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the Vancouver Canucks are also expected to bring in 19-year NHL veteran Adam Foote as an assistant coach on Tocchet's bench.

"I think also another name you're going to hear is Adam Foote, the long-time NHL defenceman who won two Stanley Cups in Colorado and an Olympic gold medal. I think it's possible he's going to be joining the staff too." Friedman said during 32 Thoughts on Hockey Night in Canada.


Foote, 51, has a couple of years of coaching experience, along with the 19 years he spent in the National Hockey League with Quebec, Colorado and Columbus. For the 2019-20 seasons, Foote was the head coach for the Western Hockey League's Kelowna Rockets, who had his son, Nolan, on the team.
