NEW YORK — The New York Rangers have hired a new leader to helm the team, according to several reports.
Gallant most recently coached the Vegas Golden Knights, taking the team to the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season. He was fired in 2020.
Previous head coaching stints for Gallant include time with the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Florida Panthers.
The Post had previously considered Gallant the front-runner for the gig at Madison Square Garden.
He succeeds David Quinn, who was relieved from his duties at the conclusion of the Rangers’ season. The franchise also split from GM Jeff Gorton and President John Davidson.
