The New York Rangers have been granted permission by the Vegas Golden Knights to interview Gerard Gallant for their head coaching vacancy, TSN's Darren Dreger reported on the latest edition of "Insider Trading."

"Clearly he is one of the top candidates in the process that has been started by new general manager Chris Drury," Dreger said.

New York fired head coach David Quinn after three seasons earlier this week as the club continues to clean house.
