From the Canadian Press via TSN:
Ken Hitchcock is ready to step behind a NHL bench again.
Despite the disappointment of seeing his Canadian team sent home from the IIHF World Hockey Championship with a quarter-final loss to Russia, the veteran coach proved something to himself during the tournament.
“For me it’s all about building teams,” Hitchcock said after Canada’s 2-1 loss to Russia on Thursday night. “If I get the chance I’m very confident now that I can build a good team. If this group can buy in this quick, then you give me two or three months with a decent hockey club ...
“If you’re willing to buy in, this thing works.”
Five NHL teams are currently without a head coach and Hitchcock is one of the biggest names available.
