Toronto Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins is interviewing for the Vancouver Canucks head coaching vacancy on Wednesday.

The Canucks requested permission to speak with Eakins from the Maple Leafs organization over the weekend.

Eakins has been the Marlies bench boss since 2009 and has two years left on his three-year AHL deal. The deal includes a clause which allows him to pursue NHL opportunities this summer.

The Canucks fired Alain Vigneault after the club was swept by the San Jose Sharks in the opening round of the playoffs.

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

The Dade City, Florida native was originally drafted by the Washington Capitals in the 10th round, 208th overall, of the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. Eakins played in 120 games for Winnipeg, Florida, St. Louis, Phoenix, the New York Rangers, Toronto, the New York Islanders and Calgary. He also suited up in 609 AHL games, registering 134 points (27 goals, 107 assists) and 1051 penalty minutes.

He retired from professional hockey following the 2004 season with the Manitoba Moose in the AHL.
