Barry Trotz's right-hand man could be in line for a head coaching job of his own.

Lane Lambert will interview for the Anaheim Ducks' vacancy, reports Sportsnet's John Shannon.

The New York Islanders associate coach previously served on Trotz's staff with the Washington Capitals and Nashville Predators.

The 54-year-old former forward also has head coaching experience at the AHL level with the Milwaukee Admirals.

Anaheim is one of four NHL clubs without a head coach at the moment, including the Buffalo Sabres, Edmonton Oilers, and Ottawa Senators.

Ducks general manager Bob Murray took over behind the bench after firing Randy Carlyle in February.
