Former New York Islanders head coach is reportedly meeting with the Vegas Golden Knights in Las Vegas, presumably about the team's vacant head coaching position.
According to Arthur Staple of Newsday, Capuano is meeting with the Golden Knights management team this week.
Capuano was fired as head coach of the New York Islanders on January 17. He compiled a 227-191-64 record behind the Isles' bench and is second on the team's all-time list in both games coached (482) and wins (227), behind legendary Hall of Fame coach, Al Arbour (1,500 coached, 740 wins).
But Capuano isn't the only candidate Golden Knights GM George McPhee will be meeting.
As reported by TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the Golden Knights are expected to ask for permission from the Boston Bruins to speak with their former head coach Claude Julien.
Julien was let go by Boston this week. He is Boston's all-time coaching wins leader, compiling a 419-246-94 record and .614 winning percentage in 759 games with the club, won a Stanley Cup with the club in 2011 and won the Jack Adams Trophy as the league's best coach in 2009.
