The Rangers have set up an interview with Gerard Gallant, reports Larry Brooks of The New York Post.

Gallant, who was most recently the head coach of the Vegas Golden Knights, owns a career 270-216-55 (.550) record as head coach, also having stints with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Florida Panthers.

It is unclear if an interview has already taken place or not, but since Gallant is traveling to Latvia for the IIHF World Championships, an interview with him is pretty urgent.

Gallant took the Golden Knights to the Stanley Cup Final in their inaugural season in 2017-18, but was let go and replaced by former Devils head coach Peter DeBoer.

Gallant is the head coach of Team Canada in the IIHF World Championships, while Rangers president and GM Chris Drury -- who will not be attending the tournament -- is the GM of Team USA.

Other potential candidates include a second tenure with John Tortorella, and Hall-of-Famer Patrick Roy.
