Gerard Gallant is set to join one of hockey's oldest organizations instead of the NHL's newest franchise after reaching an agreement to coach the New York Rangers.

Gallant and the Rangers have a deal for him to be their next coach, a person with direct knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Monday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the agreement, which was first reported by the New York Post.

Gallant was a highly sought-after coaching candidate three years after leading Vegas to the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season. He is fresh off coaching Canada from an 0-3 start to the gold medal at the world hockey championship and now he will join one of the league's Original Six franchises.
