According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, Anaheim Ducks’ Assistant Coach Paul MacLean is scheduled to have an interview tomorrow for the Anaheim head coaching position. MacLean was brought to Anaheim last season and helped the team’s power play to a league leading 23.1% this year. He is a very good option for the Ducks if they want to hire from within. Travis Green has also been named as another candidate for Anaheim per Sportnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
Yesterday the Minnesota Wild hired Bruce Boudreau. Ottawa and Calgary were also trying to hire Boudreau as well. Today the Ottawa Senators announced that they hired Guy Boucher. The Calgary Flames will conduct interviews tomorrow per TSN’s Darren Dreger.
Bob Murray had this to say about Boudreau being hired, “On behalf of the club, congrats to Bruce and the Minnesota Wild. Although coaching changes are extremely difficult, we felt that Bruce would be back behind the bench quickly. Everyone in the organization is very pleased he’s getting another deserved opportunity.”

Darryl Sutter still has not accepted an offer from the Kings’ GM Dean Lombardi. He could be in the mix along with several other potential candidates. For a list of potential candidates we complied, please visit: POLL: Who Should Be The Ducks’ Next Coach?
