Flyers hire Alain Vigneault as head coach

PHILADELPHIA (AP) �� The Philadelphia Flyers have hired Alain Vigneault as head coach, hoping the veteran can help lead them to their first Stanley Cup since 1975.

Vigneault has led the New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks to the Stanley Cup Final and takes over a Flyers team that missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher made his first big move since he was hired in November after Ron Hextall was fired. Fletcher fired coach Dave Hakstol a month later and replaced him with interim coach Scott Gordon.

Vigneault gets a chance to lead a third team to the Stanley Cup Final.
