Alain Vigneault has an agreement to be the next head coach of the New York Rangers.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reports that some minor contract details are still to be finalized on the deal.

Vigneault notified the Dallas Stars on Friday that he was withdrawing himself from consideration for their head coaching position.

Vigneault guided the Canucks to a berth in the 2010-11 Stanley Cup Final, and captured two Presidents trophies and six Northwest Division titles with Vancouver. He was fired on May 22 after the Canucks were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs for the second straight year.

The 52-year-old Vigneault posted a 313-170-57 regular-season record over seven seasons in Vancouver, but only had a 33-32 record in the postseason.
