Senators name Travis Green head coach: ‘The right fit’

travis green nhl

The Ottawa Senators announced the hiring Tuesday of Travis Green as their head coach through the 2027-28 season.

Green previously coached the Vancouver Canucks (2017-21) and finished last season as the interim head coach of the New Jersey Devils, going 8-12-1 after replacing Lindy Ruff.

Green, 53, replaces interim coach Jacques Martin, who went 26-26-4 after the Senators fired D.J. Smith following an 11-15-0 start to the 2023-24 season.

“After speaking to several highly qualified candidates, it became clear that Travis is the right fit to lead our group,” president of hockey operations and general manager Steve Staios said in a news release.

“As we’ve routinely stated, developing a winning culture is paramount to our aspiration of achieving sustained success. Travis has a burning desire to win, is passionate about teaching and holds his players to a very high standard. We’re excited to welcome he and his family to the Ottawa-Gatineau community.”

Green, who has an overall record of 141-159-35, guided the 2019-20 Canucks to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs.

He inherits an Ottawa franchise that has not been to the Stanley Cup playoffs since 2016-17 and finished seventh in the Atlantic Division in 2023-24 (37-41-4, 78 points).

Green, a forward from British Columbia, played 14 seasons with five NHL franchises from 1992-2007. He collected 455 points (193 goals, 262 assists) and 764 penalty minutes in 970 games for the Islanders, Ducks, Coyotes, Bruins and Maple Leafs.
