Mike Babcock Chosen as Team Canada’s Olympic Coach Again, Per ESPN Report

will attempt to defend Canada’s 2010 Olympic hockey gold at the 2014 Sochi Games. The ’ coach again will lead the Canadian national team, which knocked off the United States in the final last Olympics.

From ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun:

That’s Blues coach Ken Hitchcock, Bruins coach Claude Julien and former Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff rounding out Babcock’s staff.

The Canadian team should again be loaded for the upcoming Olympics, assuming the NHL allows its players to participate. Babcock’s roster likely would include players like Sidney Crosby, Steven Stamkos, Jonathan Toews, John Tavares and Carey Price.

Though the Red Wings figure to be well-represented on several Olympic rosters, there is little to no chance that any of Babcock’s current players in Detroit would join him on the Canadian team in Sochi.
