The Canucks ended the year with a 30-43-9 record, finishing seventh in the Pacific Division and 13th in the Western Conference.
Desjardins joined the Canucks prior to the 2014-15 season, replacing John Tortorella. The Canucks reached the playoffs in his first season after completing the regular season with a 48-29-5 record. They were eliminated the first round of the postseason.
