Dreger: Wings assistant Tom Renney to be named president of Hockey Canada Tuesday

The Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness and MLive's Ansar Khan reported that the Red Wings expect to lose associate coach Tom Renney's services to Hockey Canada, and TSN's Darren Dreger reports that Hockey Canada will officially announce that Renney will president Bob Nicholson in short order:

Update: Make it Tuesday...

Update #2: In text form:

Hockey Canada appears to have found their replacement for Bob Nicholson.

Former NHL head coach Tom Renney will be announced as Hockey Canada's new president in Calgary Tuesday.

The job opened up when Nicholson joined the Edmonton Oilers to oversee the team's business operations earlier this off-season.

Renney will leave his post as associate coach with the Detroit Red Wings, where he's been the past two seasons.

The former head coach of the Vancouver Canucks, New York Rangers, and Edmonton Oilers was a candidate for a couple head coaching vacancies this off-season.

People will line up to be Danny Cleary’s coach like Free Agents are cueing up to be his line mate.

Is Granato hired to coach defense or offense? In other words, is he technically taking Renney’s place or Peters’?

Found the answer to my own question in case anybody is interested too:

Helene St. James ‏@HeleneStJames
Mike Babcock said Tony Granato orig. hired to run defense & PK. Might change now that Tom Renney gone. #RedWings
