The Ottawa Senators have received permission to talk to former Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
The Sens were left with a coaching vacancy after relieving Dave Cameron of his duties on April 12. The club stumbled to an 11th place finish in the Eastern Conference with a record of 38-35-9 and 85 points.
Boudreau was fired by the Ducks after a first-round playoff exit in seven games at the hands of the Nashville Predators last week. He led the Ducks to four consecutive Pacific Division titles and previously led the Washington Capitals to four consecutive Southeast Division titles.
