NHL’s Montreal Canadiens Bring Back Michel Therrien as Coach

June 5 (Bloomberg) -- The Montreal Canadiens ended months of managerial turmoil by rehiring Michel Therrien as coach.

Therrien, 48, led the team to a 77-77-36 record over parts of three National Hockey League seasons from 2000-01 through 2002-03. He replaces Randy Cunneyworth, who was named interim coach at midseason after Jacques Martin was fired.

The Canadiens finished the season 31-35-16 and in last place in the Eastern Conference’s Northeast Division.

Therrien coached the Pittsburgh Penguins from 2005-06 through 2008-09, guiding the team to the Stanley Cup Final in the 2007-2008 season. They lost to the Detroit Red Wings in six games.
