Hall of Fame player Mark Messier interviewed for the New York Rangers' head coaching job, NHL.com reported.
Messier spent 10 seasons with the Rangers as a player and currently serves as the Rangers' special assistant to the general manager and president.
Messier did not provide details of his visit with Rangers' officials, but acknowledged he had a formal interview with Rangers president and general manager Glen Sather.
"Yes, of course," Messier told NHL.com. "That was one thing I wanted to have happen, to go through the process like everybody else and to experience that, and to give Glen the opportunity to make a decision that he feels comfortable with."
The Rangers are seeking a replacement for John Tortorella, who was fired recently.
