It’s official.  Travis Green was introduced on Wednesday as the new head coach of the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks.

The 46-year old Green replaces Willie Desjardins, who was fired earlier this month after the Canucks missed the playoffs for the second straight season.

Green has spent the past four seasons as head coach of the AHL’s Utica Comets.

He complied a record of 155-110-39 and led the Comets to two playoff appearances, including the 2015 Calder Cup Finals.

“Travis is a talented Head Coach who’s played a key role in the development of our young players through four seasons with the Comets,” said Canucks General Manager Jim Benning. “He has an intense desire to win and build a team identity that is hardworking, responsible on both ends of the ice and competitive. He has an excellent understanding of where we are as an organization and we’re confident in his ability to help build our team and develop a winning culture. We’re pleased to welcome Travis and his family and we are truly excited about the future.”

Green becomes the 19th head coach in the Canucks history.
