The Montreal Canadiens named Michel Therrien as the team’s next head coach on Tuesday.

The announcement can be seen live on TSN.ca at 2:30pm et/11:30am pt while you can listen to all-day coverage on TSN Radio 990 in Montreal and TSN.ca/Montreal.

Therrien replaces interim head coach Randy Cunneyworth, who was removed from the position by general manager Marc Bergevin on May 2.

The 48-year-old Therrien returns to the Canadiens’ bench for the first time since he replaced Alain Vigneault as head coach during the 2000-01 season. He worked two-and-a-half seasons at the helm before being replaced by Claude Julien in 2002-03.

Therrien then worked in the AHL where he coached the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins before being named the Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach midway through the 2005-06 season. He worked four seasons in Pittsburgh, leading the team to the Stanley Cup Final in 2007-08.
