Iron Mike In Latvia?

Former Team Canada coach Mike Keenan is on the short list of candidates to take over as head coach of Latvia’s hockey program.

Keenan, who won the Stanley Cup in 1994 with the New York Rangers, is one of two candidates Latvian Ice Hockey Federation president Kirov Lipman told the newspaper Diena (Day).

Latvia remains in the top group, having avoided relegation in the world championships in Slovakia in spring.

I’m all for this move, assuming Latvia then won’t let him back outside their borders.

Can you imagine being a Latvian goalie now?
