VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - The Vancouver Canucks have fired coach Alain Vigneault on Wednesday.
The Canucks also fired assistants Rick Bowness and Newell Browne.
Vigneault, the Canucks' all-time leader in coaching wins, led the club to six Northwest Division titles, two Presidents' Trophy titles and an appearance in the 2011 Stanley Cup final.
But Vancouver was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in the past two seasons, including getting swept by the San Jose Sharks this year.
It was the first time in 12 years that the Canucks were swept in the postseason.
Vigneault has a 313-170-57 record over seven seasons in Vancouver.
