Pat Burns Back Behind The Bench

from the CP via Yahoo,

A fit and upbeat Pat Burns will be behind the bench as a celebrity coach at the Top Prospects game and doesn’t entirely rule out a return to the NHL one day.
The Montreal native has battled cancer twice since the 2003-04 playoffs, when he was forced to leave his job as head coach of the New Jersey Devils. He currently acts as a consultant to Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello.
“If a team would call me or ask to speak with me, it would have to be a family decision whether I’d go back or not,” Burns said Monday at the Pepsi Colisee. “And of course, they’d have to go through the Devils.
“I’m still under contract to them and I like what I do. That would be a decision I’d have to make.”
