A report in ESPNDallas.com cites a source as saying the Dallas Stars will hire Glen Gulutzan as its next coach.
Gulutzan, 39, has spent the last two seasons as coach of the Texas Stars, Dallas’ American Hockey League affiliate. The team made the playoffs both seasons, including a trip to the Calder Cup finals in 2009-10.
If hired, Gulutzan would replace Marc Crawford, who was fired following the end of this past season after two years behind the bench.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting the Minnesota Wild soon could hire Craig MacTavish as its next coach.
According to the newspaper report, MacTavish has had two interviews with General Manager Chuck Fletcher and has toured the Xcel Energy Center and the team’s locker-room facilities.
