The New York Rangers will name Alain Vigneault the team's next head coach.
According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Vigneault inked a five-year, $10-million deal with the Blue Shirts.
On Saturday, TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reported that Vigneault had an agreement in place with the team and that only minor contract details were 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 twice captured the Presidents' Trophy alongside 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.
John Tortorella was fired by the Rangers on May 29, after losing in the second round of the playoffs to the Boston Bruins.
