The Vancouver Canucks are having a second interview with Dallas Eakins this week for their vacant head coaching position, according to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger.

Eakins, who has been with the Toronto Marlies since 2009 and has two years left on his three-year AHL deal, has received plenty of interest so far from the Canucks, New York Rangers and Dallas Stars, as well as the Edmonton Oilers for an associate coaching position.

His current deal includes a clause which allows him to pursue NHL opportunities this summer.

Eakins led the Marlies to a 43-23-3-7 record this season before they were eliminated in the Western Conference semifinals.
