      The slumping Vancouver Canucks will have a new boss behind the bench.

      The team has fired Travis Green as head coach and replaced him with Bruce Boudreau.

      Boudreau, 66, has previously coached the Washington Capitals, Anaheim Ducks, and Minnesota Wild. He posted 567 wins in 984 games as a coach but has never coached a team to the Stanley Cup.

      He has a colourful personality and has occasionally lost his cool during games. Below, you can see a motivational speech that he delivered in the Capitals' dressing room in 2010.

      Watch Bruce Boudreau speak to the Washington Capitals between periods in 2010, liberally using the f-word.

      The Canucks have only won eight of 25 games in Green's fifth season as  head coach. His best season as coach came in 2019-20 when the Canucks won 36 of 69 games and made it to the second round of the Western Conference in the playoffs, losing in seven games to the Vegas Golden Knights.

      Below, you can see Green's comments after the team's 4-1 loss to the Penguins on December 4.
