From Craig Custance at the Sporting News:
Hartley said he plans to honor his commitment to the Zurich Lions in Switzerland. He signed a two-year deal with them in March.
“I’m going to be in Zurich next year for sure,” Hartley told Sporting News. “I’ve always wanted to do this.”
Hartley, who guided the Colorado Avalanche to a Stanley Cup in 2001 and also is the only coach in Atlanta Thrashers franchise history to get that team in the playoffs, said he’s excited to return to coaching after working in television and radio the last couple years.
Hartley will stay in North America long enough to run his annual hockey camp in York, Pennsylvania - now in its 15th year. Then it’s off to Switzerland. He plans on making the move to Switzerland on July 24
